Welcome back to Victoria Park Infant School

Friday 29th January

Good morning children, it's Friday the last day of the school week. Let's find out what we are learning today.



Yesterday we started our new book by Aaron Becker. This book has no words because the story is told through the beautiful illustrations. Today we are going to be thinking about how the girl is feeling and what she might be thinking to herself at different parts of the story. Watch my video below to have a closer look at the illustrations.


Today we are going to look at the first illustration in the book, a little more closely. What is going on in the house and outside? What might each person be thinking? Today's activity is to pretend to be each person and write a sentence about what they might be thinking.

Don’t forget to use your word mat and sounds to help with your spelling’s.


Today we are going to carry on with our handwriting, doing the zig-zag monster family letters.

Word of the day

Today's word of the day is...


Remember you could practise it in your sentences when you are writing or put it on a piece of paper and display it around the house to practise reading or even challenge your family to see who can spell it from memory the fastest!



Today you will be working with Ms Charlton from Oak National Academy as she explains how to subtract using the 'make 10' strategy. You will need a pencil and paper to help you with this lesson. There are two videos to work through today. Just like our addition work this is a new way of working for subtraction which you may find tricky at first.

If this new way proves too tricky, then please keep using your objects or counting back using your number line or in your head instead.

Why don’t you try this activity for fun to practise your subtraction skills?


Topic - Ready, Steady, Go!

Previously we've made aeroplanes out of paper, so this week I wonder can you use your design and technology skills to make your own paper boat that will float without needing to use glue or sellotape? Here are some ideas to help you.

To finish our day author and illustrator Aaron Becker shows you how to draw the hot air balloon and bird from the Journey story.

Well, it’s been a super week of learning and you’re all doing a good job of learning at home with your grown-ups. I look forward to seeing and hearing from you next week. Have a good weekend,
