We are currently revising all sounds from Phase 3 and 5 and applying these to sentences. Look at this Power Point to support your learning. This will support your phonics every day.

It shows the different activities you can do each day.


English/ Topic- Brilliant Britain.

Our new topic is called ‘Brilliant Britain’. This week we are focusing on the Queen, describing her and her life.

We will be focusing on expanded noun phrases. This is where you describe a noun using two adjectives separated with a comma e.g. the sparkly, silver crown.

This week’s activities:

  1. - Talk about the Queen and who she is. Research her on Google to find out more about her.
  2. - Draw her so that you have an idea of her appearance.
  3. - Use your knowledge of expanded noun phrases to write about her, her favourite objects, how house, her dogs and her clothing.



Please practise adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers from 2 digit numbers.



We have been learning about life cycles. We have learnt about the life cycle of a butterfly. Below are some videos about this life cycle.

Challenge: Do you know the life cycle of a human? Can you write about it and draw it?
