Welcome back to Victoria Park Infant School

Wednesday 27th January

Good morning everyone,

I was so pleased to see so many home learners on our zoom call yesterday, I'm glad you enjoyed the games. Keep up with the fantastic learning you are doing at home and don't forget to email me some of your work everyday.

I just wanted to let you know I have found another website for reading books at home. They have really good resources for children on colour bands; pink, red, yellow, blue, green, orange and turquoise. You can access them on the link below.


Today we are introducing a new activity. I are now going to have a word of the day that I would like you to practise reading and spelling!

You could practise using 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 quickest!

Learning to recognise and spell lots of words from memory will really help with your independent writing.

Today's word is...



Let’s start our lesson with our warm-up to recognise our phonemes and tricky words.

Geraldine the Giraffe is going to help us find two of the ‘ee’ vowel sounds today.

Geraldine the Giraffe learns /ee/

Rachel, is now going to help us remember the other ways of spelling the ‘ee’ phoneme.

Today we are going to carry on with our handwriting, doing the long ladder letter family.

This is our last lesson on using the 'make 10' strategy to help with our addition calculations. There is a worksheet below that I would like you to have a try at using the 'make 10' strategy. If you find this too tricky you may find using another method easier and that's OK. You could use your objects or count on mentally or use a number line instead. The 'make 10' strategy is just another way to add numbers quickly using your number bond knowledge.

Why don't you send me your work today and tell me how you solved the addition sums.


For Music today, we are going to carry on with our water themed lesson. I hope you've got your singing voices today and are ready to join in with Nigel and Suki to learn the song.

Can you remember the different instruments in an orchestra? Use the lesson below to remind yourselves.

Now scroll down to the listening music clip 'sailing by' and answer the questions.

Keeping active

Here is a challenge for the NHS Change for Life website. Can you sssssssssssslither around an obstacle course?

Here is a list of activities if you would like to try out different ones.


That's the end of another terrific day, I'll see you tomorrow,
