Term 3

This term we have been learning a lot about Vincent Van Gogh and his work in our topic 'Starry Night'. We were very lucky last week to have a visit from artist Simon Towser. We really enjoyed being artists for the day and learnt how to make a sunflower screen print.

How to support your child's learning this term.


The children will be continuing to count in 2's, 5's and 10's.

We have been working on number bonds to 10 so that the children know these securely and

and can recall fluently. This song has helped us remember these in a fun way;

We have begun to use our number bonds to 10 to help us learn number bonds to 20.

This website has some more fun activities;


This website has some artworks from the National Gallery which are interesting

to discuss.

If you visit a gallery or look at artists' work try asking questions such as;

Do you like/dislike the picture? Why?

What is the mood of the painting?

What materials and colours has the artist used and why ?


Reading- please continue to listen to your child read regularly and support them to have a go

at working out new words.

High frequency words/keywords

Below is a list of the words we have been learning so far (phase 2 and 3) and those

which we will be teaching this term (phase 4).

It is helpful for children to recognise these quickly and automatically to support

fluent reading.
