This week we have been learning…


English: We have finished reading the book 'How to catch a star' by Oliver Jeffers. We have had a go at planning our own version, changing the characters and writing our own 'How to catch a __________' stories! 



We have started to look at addition of 2 digit numbers and 10's on a number line. There is a picture of one below. Can you have a go and solve it at home?



Topic: We have been busy making our moon buggies using egg boxes, wooden axels and wheels. We have also really enjoyed painting and decorating these following our designs carefully! 

Moon buggies

Previous weeks


English: We have started reading the book ‘How to catch a star’ by Oliver Jeffers. We have created a story map and come up with some actions to help us learn the story off by heart. See below a photo of the story map. Ask your child to perform the actions for you at home.


Maths: We have finished learning about place value and we will shortly be uploading some resources you can use at home to help your child further their understanding with this.

We are now learning about addition and subtraction. We have started by revising our number bonds to 10 and using this knowledge to calculate facts to 20 (7+3=10 so I know 17+3=20).


Click here for a game to practise your number bonds to 10.


Topic: In D&T we have started to design our own moon buggies thinking about the importance of an axle for turning wheels. We are really looking forward to making and decorating these before half term!
