One Childhood, One Chance

Weekly News! w/b 27.3.23

Take a look at the amazing learning we have done this week…

Read, Write Inc

This week we have been working extremely hard in our last Read, Write Inc sessions of Term 4. We have been really focussing on making sure we find the special friends first, before reading the word! After we have found the special friend we fred talk the word and the say it. For example…




Some of you may have seen comments in your child’s reading record about re-reading their reading books. We are encouraging this to help support their fluency and confidence.

In each reading folder, there is a sound card and list of red words. Any practise with these at home would be extremely helpful and support your child’s reading and writing at home.

Every morning can all children place their reading folders inside their house trays in the conservatory please :) This helps us keep track of their reading and how many books they have read. Thank you. 


This week in maths we have continued looking at fractions! We have been working hard to find fractions of a number. We used objects to help us work these out. Towards the end of the week, we practised counting in halves! We ended the week by working on our ‘working backwards’ problem-solving. We did this my finding the inverse operation and working out the calculation to find out the missing first number!


This week in RE we have continued looking at what Jesus taught us. We started the week by looking at what we can learn from the actions of Jesus. We came up with lots of ideas including; kindness, helping those in need and supporting others.

Love to Learn: 

Over the Easter break we would like for you to practice your writing skills! We would love for you to keep a diary from just one week of your Easter holidays! We would love for you to have a go at writing this all by yourselves and using your special friends to help.

This can be recorded in any way you wish :)
