Week Beginning 22nd March

In phonics this week, we are recapping the digraphs we have been learning throughout the previous weeks and trying to put them into words and sentences. Our new learning will focus on the trigraphs ‘ear’ and ‘air’ and the digraph ‘er’. The children will practise writing their new sounds and thinking of words that have these sounds in them. We will also be having fun with our learning by playing some phonics games.

In maths this week, we are continuing with our consolidation of Spring learning. We will be focusing on the composition of 7 and 8, and the combining of two groups. We will be using building blocks, cubes and playing games to help us delve deeper into our learning. We will also be digging deeper, for the children who need it, by using extension activities.

In the wider curriculum, we will be introducing the story of Easter and why we celebrate it. We will be telling the story of how Jesus was resurrected and visited his friends before going to heaven. We will also discuss the different symbols that represent Easter. On Friday, we will learn about how hot cross buns are a symbol of Easter and letting the children try them.
