If this end s sound sounds like an extra syllable then it is spelt as es. Words such as catches, fetches, matches. Can you think of any others and learn to spell them too?

We have also been learning that...

English words hardly ever end with the letter ‘v’, so if a word ends with a ‘v’ sound, the letter ‘e’ usually needs to be added after the ‘v’. Words such as have, give, live. Can you think of any others and learn to spell them too?

Please help to reinforce these words by practising them at home.

 

Also this week in English...

We have been learning about words that end in double letters. This usually comes straight after a single vowel letter in short words. Words such as off, well, miss, buzz, back. Can you think of any others and learn to spell them too?

There are exceptions to this rule such as pal, us, bus, yes.

 

In Maths were have been learning about subtraction, using resources such as counters and numberlines.

During the next few weeks we will also be learning about O'clock and sequencing simple times of the day, learning to recognise different coins and notes, learning the order of the days of the week and the months of the year, learning about 1/2 as a fraction of a shape or an amount, and language such as faster, slower, before, after, next.

 

Science is focussed around the classification of different animals.

 

Alongside this we will be continuing with other learning with the Titanic as our topic focus.
