Over the past few weeks we have been practising rapid recall of our number-bonds of numbers to 5. We have shown them in many ways, including on our fingers, with counters and other objects, and by recording number sentences. 

Watch this Numberblocks song as a starter to recap the ways of to make all of the numbers up to 5.

Now watch the video lesson about combining numbers up to 8. This involves using our number knowledge to join two groups together to work out how many altogether. We have looked at this in class, so this is a lesson to help us practise the skill.

Session 8 - Combining 2 groups.

Session 9 - Combining 2 groups.




As we have two Phonics lessons a day, here are two phonics videos to practise the new Grapheme-Phoneme Correspondences we have been learning this week. You do not have to do the lessons straight after each other. We usually teach one Phonics lesson in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Lesson 1: 'ur' as in fur

Lesson 2: 'ow' as in cow



For the past couple of week we have been reading the story 'Pip and Posy: The Big Balloon'. Here are some video links of some other books with our main characters Pip and Posy. Listen to one these stories and then draw a character or your favourite part of the book and try to write a few words or even a sentence about your picture. I have attached the phonics mat to the files section at the bottom of the page to help you with your sounds and tricky words.

Pip and Posy: The Snowy Day

Pip and Posy: The Super Scooter

Pip and Posy: The Bedtime Frog

Pip and Posy: The Birthday Party



New books have been set for you to read and enjoy on Bug Club.

If you can't log onto Bug Club, you could read any book you have at home or you could use the Oxford Owl eReading Library which has free ebooks to read.


Understanding the World

 Use this opportunity to explore, play and learn in the snow!

Some ideas you could do in the snow:

  • explore height with snowmen. Can you build a snowman that is shorter than you? Can you build a snowman that is taller than you or a pet?
  • make a snow angel. Can you write your name near your snow angel?
  • practise writing letters or numbers in the snow.
  • practise number bonds and combining numbers. Can you make 3 snowball and 4 snowballs. How many snowballs altogether?
  • observe the snow throughout the day. Are there any parts with the sun shining on it? What happens to the snow in the sunny parts compared to the not sunny parts?

So many fun things to do but make sure you wrap up nice and warm!

If you want, you can share your pictures of your fun in the snow with the staff and your friends (when we return to school) by emailing them to:



We look forward to seeing all your fabulous learning!
