St Piran Class Newsletter Friday 9th December

This week we have been revisiting our Number bonds to 10 and 20 in our Maths. We have been doing some last minute rehearsals for our Christmas Nativity next week.



This term in our Phonics we have been re-capping Phase 3 of our Phonics. In the past few weeks we have learnt the new phonemes for phase 5. There are some excellent free games on Phonics Play to help your child practise their Phonics.


Home Learning

For your home learning I would like the children to complete the Number bonds to 10 or Number bonds to 20 activities. Number bonds to 10 and 20 are the pairs of numbers that add together to make either 10 or 20. We have been using our fingers and using Numicon to help us with our bonds this week. For extra Home Learning this week why not play Ping-pong ( A number bond to 10 game where one person says a number and the other person says the other number needed to make 10 or 20. We have played this game a lot recently and the children really enjoy it.)




Support tips:

  • Use fingers or draw your own pictures to represent the number bonds to 10. (See picture)
  • Encourage your child to refer to a number line or numbers around the house to help them write their numbers the correct way.


Our performance is on Wednesday the 14th December at 2pm. We hope to see you there. Please make sure your child’s costume is in school.
