Our Learning for Today


  • Reading - our final read of our non-fiction books
  • Speedy sounds - Join Rosie from 9.30am
  • Grammar -Year 1 -Using capital letters for names and at the start of our sentences.                

Year 2-Contractions - using an apostrophe to put two words together to take our letters and make a shorter word...              

such as do not  to don't.

  • Lila and the Secret of Rain - we move on with the story and reflect on the story so far and predict what might happen next...
  • Maths
  • Art - making African inspires masks.






Today it's your final read of your non-fiction books; 'A Pet Tortoise' or 'Save the Whale.' Your challenge is to read the book fluently and to make it interesting to the listener. You can do this by adding expression to your voice as you read. As you have read the book three times you should have a very good understanding of what you have read. Move onto the back of the book then and see if you can answer the questions. Good luck. smileyYou've got this!
