Summer 1

Congratulations to our Star Writers of this half term!

Well done Molly and Leo!

15.5.18 Marsh Farm

We had some visitors to our class. We were very surprised how tiny the tadpoles were.

We have been learning about the different animal groups. We made our own lizards. Do you like them?

Phonic websites:

Focus Book


  • Imagine if a different animal came to tea. How would they behave?
  • How would your family react if a tiger wanted to come to tea? 
  • The author uses the words 'big', 'furry' and 'stripy' to describe the tiger. Can you think of any more adjectives?
  • Imagine that you are Sophie telling your daddy about the tiger. How will you explain what happened?
  • Sophie's supper was 'lovely'. Can you think of synonyms for this word?
  • What do you think happened to the tiger next? Where did he go after visiting Sophie's house? 


Maths 16.4.18

This week, we will been learning about multiplication. We will be learning that multiplication is the same as repeated addition and can be shown as an array.
