This week in English we are going to be planning and writing our own story. We want you to write your own version of Dogger. Your story will be all about you losing your favourite toy and how you get them back. On Friday there will be a reading eggs assignment to complete.
We are continuing to look at conjunctions this week- we are looking at and but and or. Remember conjunctions are joining words. They join two clauses together in a sentence.

This week, we are going to continue learning about Place Value within 20. For each day there is a worksheet which has 3 different levels - Easy (Page 2), Medium (Page 3) and Hard (Page 4). Please use the sheet which you feel best suits your child. In the Challenge box, there is an additional sheet for each day which is more about problems solving and explaining your thinking. Feel free to use this if and when you like!
This week, we are going to continue looking at materials. This week we are going to be looking at the properties of different material. If you can't find some of the objects listed on the sheet, you might want to change them for something different.
The stars at the top of the sheet show the level (1 star - easy, 2 stars - medium, 3 stars - hard)
Carrying on with our unit based on the creation story this term we would like you to make your own Lego creation. In the creation story we know that God was pleased with his creation because it says 'God saw that it was good.' Once you have made your own Lego creation we would like you to send us a picture of it. Think about why your creation is special to you and how you feel about it. Are you proud of it? How would you want other people to treat your creation?
We are continuing to look at the work of L.S. Lowry.
Over the next few weeks, we are going to create a collage in the style of Lowry, adding a new part each week. This week we are going to create the buildings.
