Welcome to the Zen Zone page. Here you will get a taste of what is happening in the Zen Zone each half term. Use the information shared to discuss with your child what learning will take place. 

In Maths this term, our big focus is measurement, including both length and height and weight and volume. These a great practical activities that you can practise at home too. You could measure and compare the lengths of some different items in your house or even make a cake!  We are also continuing to learn our times tables and number bonds - practising and consolidating these skills frequently will help children’s mathematical thinking throughout school.

In English, we will follow the whole school T4W procedures. However, when needed, written tasks will be adapted to follow a more Narrative Therapy format. Our text this half term will be 'The Papaya who Spoke'. We will be focussing on sequencing a story, sentence writing, and using adjectives and adverbs in our writing.

Daily phonics sessions will also be delivered in the zen zone following the 'Little Wandle' scheme.

In addition to the English and Maths activities that we have planned, we try to include a practical ‘outdoor’ activity each day which provides play based learning and an opportunity for a brain break between activities. Sensory breaks are also offered most mornings.

We will send home 3 words each week for your child to learn how to spell. These words are based on an initial assessment and are personalised for your child.

Please continue to read with your child at home and write in their reading record. Their reading books will be changed weekly.

A video on how to use Reading Eggs/ Eggspress is here.
