Byker Primary School

Spring 1

W/B Monday 24th January 2022



This week in maths we have been comparing mass using scales and getting messy comparing capacity. We have also had lots of fun getting active to explore different ways we can make numbers using counters, beanbags and cubes. 



Reception have continued their astronaut training by labelling planets and learning all about rockets. We even learnt about about 2 very famous astronauts. Why not ask your child who they were!



Fred frog has been busy this week teaching us how to make words by breaking down (segmenting) the sounds. The children are now receiving green words and books or dittys which need to be practised daily. We are noticing a big difference in the children and appreciate your help in supporting their learning. 


Homework folders 

It is vital that homework folders are brought in daily. 

We add the children's new homework on a Thursday so it is very important we have their folders.

We have had a lovely start to the Spring term this week, doing lots of practical activities. 


In Maths we have been looking at the number 0. We have counted backwards and even went on a 0 hunt. We have also been looking at comparing quantities and the children have enjoyed seeing who had more or less. 


In topic, we have become astronauts, looking at the planets in our solar system. The children have amazed us with their space facts and are able to name all 8 planets. NASA here we come!


Homework folders

The children will now need their homework folders in every day. Some children will be getting green word cards and a reading book that will be read at home and in school. Your help to ensure these come in every day is appreciated and it greatly boosts the children's progress.
