Monday, 7th January

Welcome back. The children have returned to school keen and excited to learn. 

Our new topic is ‘Once upon a time’. Well done to all the children that have brought in their home learning. There is still time to bring in any creations you have made linked to our topic. The children really enjoy sharing their home learning with their class friends.

To introduce our new topic we have a special visitor on Monday. A storyteller will meet the class and read stories with the children. Keep an eye out on twitter for photograph updates.

Our shared text is ‘The GingerBread Man’ and we have lots of exciting provision planned for this week.  The children will be practising their adding and subtracting skills using buttons in the maths area and develop their storytelling language at the small world station.  The children will also make their own gingerbread man to take home.

We will start new phonics groups this week and will be either recapping some of the trickier phase 2 sounds or starting the beginning of phase 3.  At the phonics station we will be using our blending skills to feed ‘metal mike’ CVC words.

PE is every Tuesday for the Butterflies and every Wednesday for the Dragonflies.  Please ensure PE kit is named and kept in school.
