January- Happy New Year!

What a great first week back, the children have told me all about the exciting things they did over Christmas! Thank you for the brilliant costumes for the launch of our new unit 'People of the Past'. The children have started to create a timeline of events from the last five years and it was great that they could contribute, dressed as those important people.

Reading lessons (with the support of our parent volunteers) has begun. The children will all have the opportunity to read with adults in a small group and take part in a range of reading activities that support the development of specific reading skills. This will happen daily between 9.00 and 9.20. Please continue to read daily with your child at home - the difference this makes to their progress and confidence is immense.

We have our second forest school session on Thursday. Please remember warm clothes, wellies, hats and gloves. Luckily the weather dried up last week and we had some sun! (If there are any parents that would like to help over the next few sessions please pop in to see Mrs Merrikin or I)

P.E lessons have begun again with Mrs Dixon on a Monday, this term we are looking at Gymnastics. It would be great if children could wear shorts under their trousers and short tops. The children are experimenting with different apparatus e.g. the blue bars, and need to be able to grip securely. It would also be great if girls could bring hair bands on the day of P.E (Monday and Tuesday) to tie hair up.

In maths we have been looking at number bonds and more or less. Children are now beginning to memorise number bonds up to 10 and 20 which is fantastic!

1+9=10 so… 1+19 must =20

In literacy we have been looking at speech, thinking about speech marks and what different words we can use for said. Children will be using this to help them re-tell the story of Little Red Riding Hood.
