Dear Parents,

This week we have had some fun acting out the story of the Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch. We have been writing about what our favourite lunch would be. We have also been labelling the countries and capital cities of the UK. In Art we have been making our own collage of the sea using lots of different materials. In Maths this week we have been practising how to add using the column method and bridging ten e.g 37 + 15 = 52 (going over 10 in the ones). If you would like to please practise telling the time to 5 minutes (5 past 2 etc) and adding money to £1.

Next week in Literacy we will be writing a letter to Mr Grinling from the Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch to tell him about our trip to Bexhill. We have been focusing on using an apostrophe for possession e.g Daniel’s bag. In Maths we will be revising fractions and how we find a fraction of a shape and a fraction of a number. We will also be continuing to solve 2 step problems using the four operations.

The words for the week are:  door floor poor hour our most travel towel tunnel bucket



The children can wear their own suitable clothes (we will be on the beach!) Please check the forecast and send them dressed and prepared for the weather. (Shoulders must be covered). And suitable footwear that can get wet and has a good grip.   

The children will need a back pack (not hand held bag) as they will carry everything themselves and will need their hands free for the activities.



  • If you have any report comments to return please could we have these too.
  • If you would like to look after the Guinea Pigs for a weekend this term please let us know via the contact book.
  • Miss Smart is not in school on Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday all day. Any messages about the trip please contact us before this (Tuesday morning we will check contact books).
