14th January 2019

Welcome back from the Christmas break. We have hit the ground running, with both our writing and maths. In literacy we have been writing a journey tale based on Hercules. In maths we are looking at arrays and partitioning. For our topic, " Where in the world would you go?" we are looking at Ancient Greece, more specifically the Olympics and Egypt, Pharoahs and hieroglyphics. Last week in R E we learnt about Judaism.  


Friday 12th October


This week in maths we have been comparing numbers to twenty, addition by counting and adding and subtract multiples of ten.

In English we have started to look at instruction text, on Thursday we followed a set of instructions on how to make fairy cakes linked with our Kipper story.

On Monday we were lucky enough to take part in a Diwali workshop where we learnt about the story of Rama and Sita. We acted out parts of the story through dance and had a fantastic time!

Our Week


We have had another busy week in Little Lambs. 

In maths we have been continuing to look at place value and ordering numbers, counting one more/less and ten more/less. We have practiced writing our numbers. 

In literacy we have learnt the story of Kipper's Birthday and how it all goes wrong because he sends his invitations too late. We have used this to plan our own Kipper story that we will begin to write next week. 

Our topic work has been all about birthdays this week and the children have learnt about the months of the year, days of the week and written their own set of instructions on how to throw a great birthday party. On Monday we had PE with Plymouth Argyle coach Anne-Marie and we will again next Monday so please make sure PE kit is in. 

Have a nice weekend. 



What a fantastic week in Little Lambs!

In Maths we have been continuing to work on place value, working on numbers up to 20, 50 and 100. We have also been ordering numbers from smallest to largest. In Literacy we went to The Secret Garden to draw on to rocks our own woodland or fairy tale character. We also came up with a story about a traditional character, such as a princess or a wolf.

For our topic, we have spoken about what makes us proud and why we should celebrate our own achievements.  

We look forward to seeing you all for another week in Little Lambs!


Welcome to Little Lambs! I have been so impressed with how the children have come back to school and into their new class. Well done to everyone. 

We have had a lovely three days getting to know each other and playing together. 

In maths we have explored numbers and shapes. The children have been counting, filling in missing number lines and thinking about more than and less than. We also went on a shape hunt around the school thinking about the vocabulary we needed. In literacy, we have completed a Lets think in English topic on the alphabet and illustrating our own choice of letter. 

We have also launched our Autumn topic of Celebrations with a Key Stage One party. The children will be learning about celebrations in the UK and around the world over the next few weeks. 

Have a lovely weekend!
