Week Beg 29th June


This week we have learnt phase 3/4 tricky words including : said/have/like/so/do/some/come. 

For our theme of 'All around the World' this week we have shared the story Handa's Surprise and thought about describing words for hot and cold places. As well as thinking about things we would take on holiday.  The children have also investigated 2D and 3D shapes, and thought about facts related to Africa

We are still talking about the children's move to Year 1 and thinking about what that will be like. If any concerns arise whilst at home please let us know and we will try to address them in school. 


 We are reading with your children at school, we wont be sending reading books home for now but you can access

e-books on the following email.

Saplings Fairy Tale Theatre workshop- Monday 10th Feb 2020

How you can support your child at home: 

Reading at home

Children are expected to read to an adult at home for at least 10 minutes daily.

School Reading Books are changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please indicate in the reading diary when you have read with your child so we know that they require a new book.


Please see attached list of high frequency words below. The children will be learning to read and write these words. We will start with the Phase 2 word bank and then progress onto Phase 3 and Phase 4.

Some phonics website with free games to have a look at are: and

Number facts

In Reception children are expected to know the following:

Counting up to 20

Ordering numbers up to 20

Doubling numbers up from 1+1=2 up until 9+9=18

Halving and sharing amounts

Here are some suggested websites to help you practise…


This term our topic is Space.

If you would like you could find out facts about the sun, planets, rockets and astronauts which we will be learning about.
