Homework due Thursday 4th July

We will be continuing to practise grammar rules for the rest of the term.  This week we have been learning about the past tense.  We have been using ‘-ed’ at the end of the word for the regular past tense and then trying to remember the words that do not follow that rule!


Spellings this week are therefore:

walked, painted, jumped, smiled, screamed, went, ate, ran, was, kept

Can you put them into sentences once you have learnt them?


We have been learning about multiplication and repeated addition in Maths.  If I have five fingers on one hand, how many fingers will I have on two hands? Or three hands? Or four hands? What do you notice?

Can you make up your own maths story for multiplication?

Have a lovely weekend!


Squirrel Class trip to the Horniman Museum

We had a fantastic day looking at the butterflies and exploring the exhibits at the Horniman Museum last week. Thank you so much to all the adult who came to help and we hope you all enjoyed your day as much as we did!

The lifecycle of a butterfly 

In English as part of our butterfly topic we have read the story ‘The hungry caterpillar’ and retold the story as a class. We have also been begun learning about the lifecycle of butterflies. We watched a video of the different stages of the lifecycle. Today we ordered the pictures and wrote short snappy sentences about each stage with our learning partner.

Can you remember the other name for a cocoon?

Homework this week

Apologies for the lack of spellings over the weekend.  We hope you got outside and enjoyed the sunshine and did lots of reading!


We will be assessing spelling of the first 100 high frequency words again over the coming weeks.  These can be found at the front of the reading diary and the full list is below.  These are words that come up a lot in things that we read and sometimes we cannot sound them out.  Screenshot 2019-06-24 at 09.02.15.png

Have a fantastic week.

Squirrel class – Horniman Museum trip

We are going on our trip to the Horniman Museum tomorrow (Thursday 20th June).  A few things to remember:

  • Please could all children come into school in their PE kit as normal on a Thursday.
  • If you are bringing a packed lunch from home, please make sure it is in a labelled plastic bag.
  • Please could all children bring a rain coat (just in case!)
  • Please leave book bags at home for tomorrow.

We will be back at school for collection at normal time.  We are looking forward to having lots of fun and doing some super learning as well!

Thank you,

Miss Brown

In PE this week we have been practising for our sports day which is on the morning of Wednesday 10th July. Mr Anthony has been given some tips to improve our athletic skills in time for sports day. 

Which race do you think you need to improve your skills in?
