People Who Help Us

Week beginning: 14/01/19

This week we shall be focusing on


Here are some areas we shall be looking at in class this week that you could try at home...

Literacy and phonics

This week we will be learning all about the police in literacy. We shall be reading a story about Anita the police officer. The children will then be thinking about the different elements of the story including – characters, settings, problems and solutions. At home you could ask your child if they can identify characters in stories and where the story is set. Can they notice the problem in the story and how it is solved?


In maths this week we shall be learning to share objects. We will be encouraging the children to think how to share objects equally and fairly between two or more people. At home you could encourage the children to share objects, or their chocolate or sweets with you fairly.

Sunflower Value

Our new Sunflower Value this term is ‘Co-operation’. We shall be looking out for the children who are helping their friends and working together for a shared goal. If you notice your child being co-operative at home please bring them in a wow card.

Family Challenge

For a Family Challenge this week, could you please take a photo of your child sharing their toys equally and fairly with you. Could you then please email your photos to with the subject line RVC or RJS Sharing Challenge
