Friday 22nd May

Happy Friday everyone!


Today is our last day for home learning before we have a break for a week. 


I hope you have a lovely, restful week off and for those celebrating Eid, have a great time!


Mrs E


To start today's phonics please can you recap all of your phase 3 and phase 5 sounds that you find tricky. You can use your sound mats or you could use the flash cars on phonics play



Can you now practice some of your tricky words- You need to be able to read and spell these! Practise the ones that you find difficult. Choose up to 5.




Today we are continuing with our split digraphs. Today we are looking at the sound u-e (oo) like in flute and u-e (yoo) like in cube                                                                      

cube        costume

tune         mule

flume       prune

rude        huge


I have attached some sheets and games at the bottom of this page. Choose the sheet that you think would be best for your child.


Or can you play Buried Treasure and practice ‘u-e’ the sounds?




Reading – Have you read any books from Big Cat Collins?

You should try to read one or two a week.


Remember Choose the colour above your home reading book. There is an activity to complete at the end of the book. Let me know what books you have read there are lots of dojo points on offer.

Warm-up – Practice quick fire subtraction. Choose 2 numbers within 20.

The aim is for rapid recall.

Practice using Hit the button – Number bonds – subtraction up to 20

How many can you get right?


Maths Challenge




Use objects around the house to help you solve this problem in a practical way and then have a go at writing the number sentence. Ask an adult to check your answer. Good luck!




This weekend many of you will be celebrating Eid, I thought would be a lovely idea if you all made an Eid card for one of your friends or family. You could create a lovely design on the front and write a lovely message to one of your them friends on the inside.






Topic – Super Hero Bear (Thursday and Friday)

Have you seen the message from Mrs Rafferty on school story?




We thought it would be lovely if you all designed a 'Superhero Teddy' to say thank you to all those people who have gone to work so that we can stay safe, especially the NHS.

So put your Design Technology thinking caps on and send us photos of your designs.

We will choose one winner from each class and then one overall winner which will be made into an actual St. Thomas's teddy for school.

Year 3 have already been designing some and we thought it would make a great school competition. Scroll through the photos on Y3 school website as they may give you some ideas.

Your designs need to be sent to me on Dojo by Thursday 4th June at 3pm.

Good luck and get designing!


Remember, you can post your work on Class Dojo to show me what you have done. There are lots of dojo points on offer! smiley
