Happy New Year!

Happy new year, and I hope you've all had a fun and healthy Christmas. A big thank you for the lovely cards and gifts.

Next week promises to be an exciting one as we launch our new unit on 'Toys'. Don't forget our launch day on Wednesday (see Parentamail/letter sent on last day of term for details) We will be looking at the similarities and differences between the toys we've brought in, how they work, materials used to make them, their purpose...amongst many other things.

In maths we will be learning more about calculating, measuring and understanding shape. By linking the 3 areas we hope the children will start making connections between different aspects of maths, rather than seeing them in isololation.

In literacy we're focussing on narrative writing by looking at the work of Jane Hissey (Old Bear stories etc.) We will be looking at the characters, themes and familiar storylines she uses in her books. Our aim is to write our own stories using similar characters and themes, but with our own twist.

This week we will be giving you your child's targets for the end of this academic year. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to pop in and see me. 

Looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday!
