I would like to say a warm welcome back after the Christmas holidays and take this chance to wish you all a very happy New Year!
This term we will be learning all about fairy tales with our topic, “Will you read us a story?” The children have already started learning to re tell Cinderella using talk for writing techniques. Ask them for a performance and learn it alongside your child!
The children have come back from Christmas ready to learn, keen to please and they are a pleasure to teach. The support you give both the children and school are greatly appreciated, thank you and well done! It is with this support that children really excel and achieve their full potential.
Over the next few weeks the children will be learning all about: Cinderella, Jack and the beanstalk, the magic porridge pot and the enormous turnip. In addition we will be learning about traditions and celebrations which take place at this time of year: Easter and Mother’s day. They will be making models, drawing pictures, tasting porridge, writing stories and many more things.
The children will start to bring home a small amount of maths homework weekly, this will be something you can do together to improve the children’s basic counting skills. The children are still expected to read at home four times a week. This gradual build-up of homework is intended to make a smoother transition into year one next year.
Book bags need to be brought into school every day.
Water bottles are needed in school every day.
Wellies can be left in school if children want to go in the mud kitchen.
Children need a pair of indoor shoes which should be left in school.
Your child will need a coat every day, as they will be outside at lunch time as well as during some of the lesson time.
PE is on a Wednesday.
Once again welcome back after Christmas and thank you for your support. I look forward to working with you and your children this coming year.
