In Key Stage One phonics is taught in phonics groups rather than classes.  Your child will know who their phonics teacher is, but if you need clarification please message your child's class teacher on class dojo for confirmation.

Spellings to learn 

The children will receive a weekly set of spellings to learn. The spellings are matched to their ability level in phonics. Each week we would like the children to learn these spellings ready for a weekly spelling quiz on Tuesday's. 

Reading books


Each week your phonics teacher and/ or your class teacher will post a link (see below) to a free online reading book that is approximately matched to your child's phonics level. Accessing the eBooks is free, the website only requires you to create a log in which consists of a username and password of your choice.

Mindfulness focuses on paying attention to the present moment (thoughts and feelings) as well as the world around you. This can improve mental wellbeing. The link below is to classical music which is aimed at children in order to support relaxation and mental focus.



Today continue with the work set yesterday and try writing your new poem. All the resources are on Tuesday's page if do you need them again. 



I can say which materials are natural and which are man-made


Working scientifically

  • I can identify and classify



Dear Children,

Morris has been so busy tidying all of the items in the forest away to the recycling depot, he has taken everything! Sticks, stones, branches, plants and more.  The animals and birds are now very upset. They need to teach Morris what man-made materials are and what natural materials are so that Morris doesn't keep recycling everything. Can you help him?


Best wishes

The forest animals


The forest animals need your help to learn these terms and help Morris so he doesn’t keep recycling everything in the place where he lives.


Can anyone think of a natural or a man-made material? Have a look in your house. 

Have a look at the powerpoint below to get some ideas of which materials are man-made and which are natural. See if you can collect some of these materials together and sort them into groups. Man-made and natural. 



1. As you go out for walks this week see if you can spot things that are man-made e.g. lamp posts, roads, houses and talk about the materials they are made out of. Can you find natural materials too e.g. twigs, branches, leaves, soil, clay, sand, 


2. Can you use natural and man-made objects to create art?

Make faces/pictures using different materials. Whilst using the materials discuss their properties e.g. smooth, rough, transparent, waterproof.



Send us your photographs and we can let Morris see the different materials which are man-made and which are natural. 



Final Question - Are all man-made objects bendy? What do you think? Can you find objects to test out your prediction.





Can you find out some facts about Diplodocus? Tell someone at home something you've learned.
