The Deep Blue Sea


Dear Parents,

This week in class Jonah we have been learning about sharing in maths, odd and even numbers. We had a Pirate Day on Wednesday which was brilliant, we had a treasure hunt and did all made all sorts of Pirate things. Look at our blog for more exciting things we did. We wanted to stay as Pirates it was that good. We also had a busy week making our dad’s special things for Sunday! Then this afternoon we had our Father’s afternoon. Where we had a brew and some chocolate brownies we made. Then we played Pirate Bingo. After that we had a competition where we had to make a Junk model Pirate ship (thank you Mrs Waterhouse for all your recycling) that had to sink and look like a Pirate ship. The competition was judged by Mrs Armitt and the winner’s were Emily and her Daddy, Lucas came second for making a boat on his own and Hannah and her Daddy came 3rd. Well done to the winners bur for all the daddy’s and children who took part. Then we had show and tell and story. We all had a great time!

Next week we will be continuing with our sharing and halving of numbers and objects in maths. We will be practising writing down our questions ready to interview our possible new owners of the chicks! Also we will be reading the book ‘Tiddler’ by Julia Donaldson ready for our trip on Friday.

How can you help at home?

  • Practise the new sound ‘ir’ that sounds like er and ur sound.

  • Please practise sharing amounts between 2 people. We know that sharing means the groups of objects are the same on both sides.


Trip to Buxton on Friday to the Opera House to watch Tiddler. Please remember it’s pack lunch either provided by home or school. All children must bring a coat.

Happy Father’s Day
Miss Irwin, Miss Kippen and Mrs Brammeld
