Reading - The final read of our books


I wonder  how fluently you can read your book today, now that you are very familiar with the it. Don't forget to answer the questions at the back! I think you will do very well! smiley

Read, Write, Inc Speedy Sounds with Rosie from 9.30am


Join Rosie to focus on these sounds today...smiley


Set 2 – or

Set 3 – ire

Reading longer words – oy/ oi

Our literacy work - grammar and our new story...


Our grammar work combines with phonics today to listen to words that rhyme. Many poems and some stories contain text that rhymes and the story I will read after your rhyming warm up is one example of this. The author Julia Donaldson loves to write her stories this way too. The rhyme creates a beat or rhythm.

So, up on your feet and see if you can join in with the rhyming dance and think of some words that rhyme with the ones Radzi gives to you. 


Remember, just as we learn through our read, write inc speedy sound work, not all rhyming words have the same spelling pattern. 

Our new book; Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain - a folk tale discovered in Kenya more than 70 years ago. 


Sit back and enjoy listening to me reading this story. Follow the illustrations and rhymes; I wonder how well you can predict any words I might cover?

This folk tale gives another account of how the problem of a lack of rain, a drought, could be ended.

Have a little think in preparation for a book review we will write tomorrow, what you think to this tale? Could it be true? What is similar about this story and  'Lila and the Secret of Rain'? What is different? Which story or tale do you prefer and why?
Our Maths Learning Today

Year 1 Maths


Today you won't be counting in 1's but in 2's. You might like to warm your counting brains up by using the colours to count in 1's or 2's on the number square below...

Your teaching video for today - Year 1

This is "Spr1.7.2 - Count in 2s" by White Rose Maths on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

And your counting in 2's worksheet.

Year 2 


Today you continue to look at how information can be shown in different ways on different graphs. Today you are learning about block graphs. Be careful to notice how much each 'block' is worth. Sometimes each block is worth 1, but in some questions today a block will be worth 2. smiley

Your learning video today on Block diagrams...

Our Afternoon Learning -Art

Following our fabulous Zoom singing and dancing performances over the past few weeks we will continue to raise the roof with our shared performance  this week.

I wanted to bring in some more Lion King Music ( I loved watching the film and singing along) and also to bring in another big cat tribute - the tiger!


You have shown  such resilience over the past few weeks that the song I have chosen reminds me of you. You have kept going, haven't let things get you down for long and you are our champions. You have also been a roaring success at singing in our Zooms!

So the song we will learn and dance to this week is 'Roar' by Katy Perry. 


Tigers don't live in Africa; many live in the jungles or forests in the continent of Asia.  Here is a little bit of information about these striking animals...

In preparation for our song, I would love you to put your art skills into making this tiger mask. Look what the lady does at the end to make the mask 'pop' and become 3D. You will need a piece of card and paints. If you have glitter you know I'd be adding that on too!heart
