Welcome to the Spring Term 2019 and happy new year!  This term our topic is 'Traditional Tales' and we will be exploring and retelling stories such as Goldilocks, The 3 Little Pigs, Red Riding Hood, and The Gingerbread Man.  Retelling stories is an important skill as it introduces children to story language and patterns, and enables them to structure and write their own stories with confidence.  Children need to be able to discuss events in a story and talk about the main characters, plots and settings in order to achieve the Early Leaning Goal for Reading. We hope you will support our activities at home by reading regularly to your child and asking them questions about the stories read to them.  Thank you for your continued support.      Miss Mitchell & Team

Wow, what a busy few weeks we have had!  Not only have we been learning about and celebrating Christmas and performing our Nativity to the school and the parents/carers, we have also had a visit from the Community Dentist who taught us how to look after our teeth and make sure we clean them properly.  We hope you enjoy looking at the photos of these activities below.                      Miss Mitchell and Team

Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn Term.  This term we will be learning about and exploring the topics of  'Bonfire Night', Remembrance Day, Percy the Park Keeper, and Christmas. We will also have our first 'Stay and Learn' session  with parents/carers, which we are looking forward to.  We will be continuing to learn to read through phonics, and working hard to improve our Maths skills, especially our recognition of shapes and patterns. Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to an enjoyable and busy term.  Miss Mitchell & Team

The children of Class R will be very busy over the next few weeks settling into school and exploring their classroom and it's resources. They will be taking part in lots of child initiated play and learning, which will enable us to find out what they can already do and what their next steps are.  The children will be getting used to working in large and small groups, as well as one-one with an adult, and we look forward to supporting the next steps in their learning. We are exploring the theme of 'Ourselves' and will be talking about our bodies, our families and our homes, and discovering and celebrating how different and unique we all are! Then we will be exploring how to keep ourselves healthy.  Soon we will be adding photographs of our activities for you to enjoy.  Thank you for your support.  Miss Mitchell & Team
