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 packed 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 have time 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 and will be continuing to do more on this next week. 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.


The children need a packed lunch, fruit snack and drinks.


A spare pair of socks maybe helpful!!!
