We have been doing lots of exciting learning in Watermelon Class recently.
The children really enjoyed our trip to Banham Zoo. Thank you for all your support.




Children have been practising using digraphs and trigraphs in their reading and writing.

A digraph is two letters that make one sound, e.g. ‘oo’ in moon.

A trigraph is three letters that make one sound, e.g. ‘igh’ in night.

A split digraph is a digraph such as ae, ie, oe, ee, ue that is  ‘split’ by a consonant, e.g. the ‘ie’ digraph has been split by the letter n to make the word, ‘pine’.

We will share new sounds in the phonics home book.

Check out these great websites too.



In Maths, we have been learning about doubling, halving and sharing. We use the part-part-whole mats to help us. We continue to do lots of counting and learning to recognise and order numbers to 20. We have also started to learn number bonds to 10, (pairs of numbers that add up to 10)

We use Numicon to help us learn about numbers.

We continue to learn about 2D and 3D shapes and have been on shape hunts at school and at home!
