Today is Thursday and a special day for one member of our class !

Happy birthday S – we hope you have a super day – this song is just for you!


Wake Up, Shake Up!


We’ve been learning the story of The Gingerbread Man

Can you retell the story to your family ? Perhaps you could make some puppets or masks and act it out.

Think about what each character might say or feel.

Write the words of The Gingerbread Man in your work book.


Today’s sound is ear

It’s a trigraph (3 letters/1 sound)

Can you find it on the sound mat?

Blend the sounds to read the words.

Remember the tricky words ? We don’t sound them out. Sing the song and spell the words.


Can you read these tricky words ? Now write them in your work book.



Yesterday we began learning to count in twos. Counting in twos is quicker than counting in ones.

Say the numbers that are highlighted yellow.

Join in with singing the song.

Can you count in twos ?


Join in with singing the song.

Bean Plants

Has your bean plant started to grow ?

This is mine, I watered it every day and put it on the window sill in the light.

It took 10 days to sprout up through the soil. I thought I had watered it too much and that it would never start to grow!


It is getting taller every day and it has grown leaves too.

I wonder what will happen next ?

Relax and Unwind

Note to parents:

Keep in touch and if you’re happy to share photographs of your child’s work with us – please send them to

Mrs Chowdhury, Mrs McCutcheon and Mrs Smith.
