English:  We have changed our handwriting time to every morning and have played various games to support new spellings. Our new focus for English is Christopher Columbus, this week we have been researching facts from texts.  
 
Phonics: Tricky words, through and thought; sound buttons and how to remember the tricky part of the spelling.  Spotting 'e' sounds in a letter - e, ee, y, ea, ey, ei. 
 
Maths: We have been reading addition and subtraction word problems, picking out key information to solve problems.  We have used the bar model to show our working.
