We have been comparing numbers using these symbols in maths this week!Screen Shot 2017-09-18 at 19.15.52.png

This game starts off really easily on level one where you need to say which number is greater from the single digit. As you progress they become two and three digit numbers which level can you get to?

We have been using the looking at place value this week in maths this week!

This game is great for practising and recapping how to use the equipment, how to make three digit numbers and understanding place value as the children can see the hundreds, tens and units.


All children have been given a blue book with this weeks spellings in. These will be tested in the back of the blue book on Monday and a new set of spellings will be stuck into the front to practice for the following week.

This weeks spellings are

Rule: The i sound spelled y

In some words, the letter y is said as if it were an i

The y in gym sounds like the i in rim











Some children may have these spellings

  1. away
  2. good
  3. over
  4. how
  5. did
  6. man
  7. going
  8. many
  9. pencil
  10. child

Capital Letters and Full Stops

This weeks SPAG looked at capital letters and the correct place they are used. This was a great refresher for everyone! We need to make sure they are used consistently. We used this game during our lesson and I thought you may like it to follow up.

Let me know how you get on!

Handwriting – Group 1

The children have been working hard to make sure their writing is beautiful and any practice at home will be helpful and get them working towards that all important pen license! This video will help you have beautiful letter formation.

This group of letters are called the Jumper Family and they all begin with a downward pull towards the line we are writing on.

The letters in this family are:

h  b  r  n  m  p

Remember that ‘b’ has no flick because when the pencil lands on the line we pull back and ‘hug the tree’.


Times tables challenge

This morning we began our quest to learn more of our times tables by having a go at completing our first times tables challenge. Although it was tricky we did really well with everybody having a great attempt at completing as many of their times tables as they could.

Make sure that you carry on practising your times tables at home, especially the one you are  working on at the moment. You will know whether you are working on your 2, 10, 5 or 3 times table at the moment. Very soon Mrs Lloyd and I shall be seeing your names moving up the times table ladder in the classroom. Let’s see who can get the highest.
