Good Afternoon Class 1!

I hope I find you all well!

The children have absolutely blown me away in maths this week! We have finished off our fractions unit, exploring how to find a quarter of a shape, recognising a quarter of a quantity and finding a quarter of a quantity. We did find it a little bit tricky to begin with, however we persevered and absolutely smashed it! I was particularly impressed by the children’s ability to recall previously taught number skills such as doubles, number bonds and adding.

In English we have finished our 5-part story unit, linked to Sleeping Beauty. It has been a pleasure reading the children’s stories. I have read about Princesses, Magic Elves, Magic Trees, Witches, Wizards, Rabbits and everything in between. Well done Class 1!

RWI Home learning:

Practice your  story green words and red words from your home reading book on a piece of paper at home. These can be found on the How to help your child read this book page.

Challenge: Can you use the words in sentences?


In preparation for the upcoming phonics screener we have being playing 3 games in class this week; Buried Treasure, Dragon’s Den and Picnic on Pluto.

The children have really enjoyed having a ho at these games, therefore I thought they we like to practice at home too.

To access the games, please follow the link above.

When you click on the link choose your game, it will take you to a start button, click this. It will then take you to a screen that looks similar to the one below:

Choose either phase 4 or 5.

You will then be greeted by a page similar to this one:

Select, Revise all Phase 5.

The children will then be able to guide you through what needs to be done.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Mr Mallison
