Welcome back after half term. We hope you all had a lovely break and made some lovely family memories. 

We will begin this half term by learning about mini beasts, growth and changes. The Creepy Crawly Roadshow will be coming to school to showcase some amazing mini beast creatures!

We are getting some great WOW cards back to share the learning that has been done at home so thank you.

In Literacy, we will be reading the Bad Tempered Ladybird, which will inspire us to write our own stories! Followed by some non-fiction writing, focused on growth change and life cycles.

We will continue teaching a daily phonics lesson, the children are doing phenomenally well and are applying their phonics to write sentences!

We are encouraging the children to blend and segment the sounds in the words they are reading and writing. If you missed the Phonics workshop please find the material on our school website.

We are continuing to develop our fine motor skills with our daily handwriting practise and there are lots of opportunities in provision to enhance our control. 

Our Maths learning will continue to focus heavily on shape, space and measure. We will continue to learn all about number, including addition, subtraction and moving on to halving. We are now counting in 2s at the start of each maths lesson, can your child show you this at home?

Continue to play maths games at home - I know we will be playing lots of Maths games and songs to help us learn. We can also spot Maths everywhere in our environment, it is important that your child knows the names of simple shapes.

In R.E. this term’s focus is on Justice, but we will be learning about Easter and the stories Jesus heard.  We will be reading lots of stories in the Old Testament such as the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son. 

We hope also to learn lots and follow the children’s interests. Other things that might crop up in our learning include: Easter, Mothering Sunday and World Book Day. We can't wait to see your child's costumes on Thursday 1st March.

Our classroom provision areas now reflect the needs of the class, as we have completed our end of term assessments. The areas of need we have identified are:  People and Communities, Health and Self -Care, Understanding of the World and Making Relationships.

Our classroom provision areas continues to reflect the needs of the class, as we have completed our termly assessment data. The areas of need we have identified are: Health and Self Care, Making Relationships, People and Communities and The World. One thing is for sure is that they will be filled with lots of fun and exciting learning opportunities.

P.E. will be on a Monday and a Friday, so please ensure your child has their kit in school at all times. Your child must dress themselves for school, this helps their physical development and helps them when changing for P.E. Also, can we remind you that ALL belongings need your child's name in. This will help any lost items be returned to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Fletcher and Miss Ball.



Here are some little ideas how you can support your child's learning at home:

  • Reinforce the sounds covered each day in class.
  • Practise name writing. Please make sure your child uses lower case letters except for their initial letter.
  • Share reading books, discussing plots, characters, and their feelings, as well as simply decoding the text.
  • Draw your child’s attention to numbers in their environment e.g. telephones, door numbers, car number plates etc. Count things around the home. How many windows do we have etc?
  • Encourage your child to dress themselves for school and take their uniform off at the end of the day to promote independence.
