In maths today, we are going to find out about Venn Diagrams and use these to sort 2D shapes. You will need to look carefully at the statements at the top of each circle and look for sneaky shapes that match both.
In Key Stage One phonics is taught in phonics groups rather than classes. The phonics groups each work at a different ability level, therefore there are different phonics videos for each group. 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.

Shared reading involves children joining in with the reading and comprehension of a text whilst guided and supported by an adult. The text can be read by an adult if it is tricky or the child can read it themselves. The reader should be encouraged to use expression in voice and note the features of the text e.g. the title, any illustrations, the author/ illustrator and the structure of the text. Shared reading aims to improve comprehension skills known as VIPERS (vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval of information and sequencing). During shared reading the children are encouraged to ask and answer comprehension questions either verbally or in written form and any feedback about the text should be encouraged and discussed.
Please see the links below for the shared reading text and tasks.

It's our final week of our Dinosaur topic. In school we would usually be preparing for our dinosaur Exhibition, inviting parents to come and view all the information the children have collected and items they'd made over the last 5 weeks.
Unfortunately, we haven't been able to do this but we've greatly enjoyed seeing all of your pictures along the way.
So this week we would like you to look through the dinosaur powerpoint and choose which of the dinosaur crafts you would like to achieve on which day. We've allocated today, Wednesday afternoon and some of Thursday to make sure we can practise all of the art skills above.
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.
