Today's maths continues our learning about number bonds but today we are going to be using the part, part, whole method to find number bonds to 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9!



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. 

Please see the links below to watch today's phonics lesson.

Sentence writing



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 a guided mindfulness session aimed at children in order to support relaxation and mental focus.


Today we have been set a challenge to begin collecting ideas for our very own poem. Look through the English PowerPoint first to find out more...

                                       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. 





  • I understand the term recycling.
  • I know which materials can be recycled and which cannot.  
  • I can  distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made


Recap the names of materials - Wood, plastic, metal, paper, glass, rubber, - see powerpoint below. 


Recap the messy Morris story and then read on to Page 12 Where is he now and Why is he there? What does this place do? Introduce the term recycling and that products can be recycled to make new items. This is a recycling centre


We need to help Morris to clear up his home and to make it all clean again, so we need to recycle all of the different items that he found from the rubbish.


Does anyone recycle at home? What do you recycle and how? (Card, paper, metal, glass, compost, batteries at supermarkets, garden waste)


Let’s learn to recycle

Play the game -



Let’s identify and classify objects to be recycled by their material or property

Can you sort the materials into the correct boxes below? If you are unable to print the following pages, write the materials at the top and ask the children to think about items we recycle which are made from these materials and draw them/ write them underneath.


Let's finish– Read through the messy magpie – All about recycling ppt. Show the children the different items which can be recycled and what is done with them.


There are also two ‘Did you know’ programmes on Cbeebies which could be watched this week to learn more about recycling.

Story time 

Each day there will be a story or poem read to the children by a member of the Key Stage One team. 

Please see the link below for the story today. We hope you enjoy it.
