Spring 2019


So this term we’re seeing exciting progress in our learning! We are beginning to be able to use our digraph knowledge in our writing, and to spot them in our reading. Our writing table is all full and we are getting through paper very fast! We are learning to write calculations, and have learnt all about the special signs we use in them.

We’ve especially loved the Bear Hunt story, making music and lots of craft activities too.

We’re embracing the cold weather and learning to put on coats, gloves and scarves by ourselves.

Our topics after half term will be ‘Fit and Well’ and ‘Goldilocks’ and we are looking forward to learning her story and doing some fabulous writing!

Our last week will focus on the Easter story culminating with our visit to church to celebrate as a school.

We loved learning our Christmas songs and performing them to our grown-ups.

We knew all the words and every action! Happy Christmas and what a great end to our first term in school.

We have been reading 'Oliver's Vegetables' so we decided that we would all taste some different vegetables like Oliver did. Kate the cook brought lots of vegetables for us to taste, we arranged them on a wrap, and then we ate them! Yum!

We've been learning about the Little Red Hen and how she planted the seed, grew some wheat and took it to the miller before she made bread from the flour. Our cook Kate came to help us make bread rolls - they were delicious!
Here we are getting used to our new school - making new friends and learning about our new place.

Wow! What a great start to the year!

We’ve already made such amazing progress, thanks so much to all the parents and carers for all their help and support.

Our new classes have made new friends, learnt lots about what goes on in school and settled in to our classroom space with joy and growing confidence.

Our theme is respect and we’ve talked about being polite and kind to each other, as well as looking after school property and trying to keep everything neat, tidy and in working order!

Now it’s time to learn all about letters and their sounds so that we can begin to read and write.


Look out for our Fact Finders so you can find out all about the best ways to support your child and join in with their learning journey.
