WB: 29.5.23 - Messages


The week beginning 12th June your child will complete a phonics screening assessment. Here is an example paper from last year so you can see what the children will be expected to read. Phonics past paper 2022.  Children spot the special friends, Fred talk (sound it out) and then read the word.


Creative Home learning for Summer 2 is now available.  See link at the below.


1F Walpole Park Trip - Thank you to those that have volunteered. No more volunteers needed at present. 


Weekly homework checklist:

  1. Spellings - see below for new spellings each week.
  2. Numbots - Can you reach your 10 minute weekly goal? 
  3. Learn your number bonds target number.

        Your sheet will tell you what level you are on.

   4. Read at least 5 times per week.



We would like to request that passwords for Purple Mash and Numbots are not changed at home. Teachers have a copy of all pupil log ins and passwords for use during lessons. 


It would be great if children can practice their computer keyboard and mouse skills at home: finding the letters of the alphabet, making a capital letter, # and @ symbols. 




Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. Complete your child’s reading record each time they read. Remember it doesn’t always have to be their school book. Reading records and reading books should be sent into school daily.


Numbots for Mathematics

Why do we use Numbots? Please read here to find out more about Numbots.  The programme helps children develop a secure understanding of numbers bonds using multiple representations. This consolidates learning completed in school. Children should aim to do Numbots every week for at least 10 minutes. We would like to thank you for all the support at home.

Number Bond Challenge

Every Thursday children will be given  a Number Bond Challenge to complete within two minutes. They will begin with Number Bonds to 5. If children complete the challenge successfully, they will move to the next challenge the following week.
