2nd February 2018

This week in Literacy we have written up our own stories based on The Boy Who Cried Ninja. They are fantastic so far and we will be finishing them off next week.

In maths we have looked at place value in reception. We have been looking at what a number is and representing it in different ways. We have also looked at one more and one less with numbers. Some have even been working out 1 more and less with numbers to 50. The year 1’s have looked at place value and looking at separating our tens and ones. We then moved on to comparing numbers and then finding 1 more and 1 less.

For our topic ‘This is Britain’ we looked at Northern Ireland. They were fascinated by Titanic and Bella very kindly brought in a book with facts all about the Titanic.

We had a great time at Forest School making faces out of clay and then playing a game of 1, 2, 3 where are you (a little like hide and seek).

Our science experiment was interesting. We didn’t make an egg float but thought maybe using salt water might work so we will try next week.


Non-pupil day on Friday 9th February.


Well done to those getting full marks this week in spellings. Next week spellings will be tested on Thursday (8th February).

Please could you encourage your child to read both independently and with you as much as possible and practice their personalised spellings. It is recommended children read for 5/10 minutes a day. Please make sure all reading books and records are in school every day.

Many thanks for your support! Miss Simpson

Homework 15th December 2017

It has been a magical week at Broadhempston School.

They were all fabulous in the play and I am sure you were all very proud of them. We have done lots of Christmas activities this week including making an advent calendar and making some fabulous Christmas cards.

We have also checked your child’s progress. They have all done exceptionally well and worked really hard this term and I couldn’t be any more proud. All the reception children are now on phase 3 phonics which is fabulous. Thank you for your support reading regularly with your child and practicing their spellings. Without your support they wouldn’t have made this fabulous progress.

I hope you all have a lovely restful Christmas holiday. I have given each child some books for the Christmas holidays to enjoy together.

Our next topic will be ‘This is Britain’. Spellings and our topic homework will be handed out on the first Friday back.
