Autumn 2

This half term our topic will be 'Celebrations'. We will be exploring a variety of special celebrations including Bonfire night, Diwali and of course Christmas! If you have any photos of your family celebrating a special event, we would love to put them on our display in the classroom. 


We are so excited for our first Family Friday session this week! Below is more information about our new weekly event and a timetable for you to see when each class are inviting their family members into school. 

Thank you to all who attended our parent phonics workshop. Below is a link to the youtube video showing how we teach the children to pronounce the phonemes we teach. We have also uploaded the powerpoint presentation we used for the meeting. Feel free to come and ask a member of staff if you would like any more help and support! 



This week we have been exploring the story of Guy Fawkes and his plot to blow up the houses of Parliament. The children have had fun making firework pictures, models and descriptive sentences this week. Here is some of our fantastic art work :) 

Autumn 1


This week we have been busy finding out more about ourselves and our families. The children have painted lovely portraits of themselves and talked about the things they enjoy doing. We have also been reading and retelling the story 'Peace and Last' by Jill Murphy. For phonics this week we have learnt the phonemes i, n, m and d. You can support your child at home to spot these in words and practise sounding out simple words for them to blend.

We have had a great week with the children being in school full time! They have enjoyed lots of painting and finding out about themselves and their families. We have also been busy making some yummy snacks like flapjack and tasting different fruits and vegetables for snack! The children have been working hard in phonics and have learnt four new phonemes; s, a, t and p! You can support your child at home by spotting these letters in the world around them, for example, in books, on labels and on signs.


Story of the week

This week we have been enjoying the story 'So Much' by Trish Cooke. It is a story about family and celebration. Ask your child if they can remember any of the characters and what happens in the story.
