The children have settled in really well at school and have made some super progress this term. It was lovely to see so many of you at our Stay and Play Phonics and Maths sessions and I know the children really enjoyed having you with them during their activities. Our next event is Christmas Crafts and Carols during the afternoon of Tuesday 17th December. More details will follow.
Keep up-to-date with your child's learning on Tapestry. We love to hear about all the wonderful learning that happens at home so please do add your observations too!

New Power of Reading Text - No Dinner
We have started our new story which is set in India, which provides lots of opportunities for learning. We will be comparing habitats, learning about India, recreating the story through drama and doing lots of writing too! Please find the latest Home Learning Opportunities below. We look forward to seeing your contributions on Tapestry.
As you know, we use Jolly Phonics to support teaching of sounds. Please take the time to read the sound cards issued to your child with them and talk about the sound, the action and the song they have learned for each. We use songs from Jolly Phonics which are a fun and active way to learn the sounds. Copy the link below into your browser for the songs in the order we teach them. Alternately download the Jolly Phonics app.
How should the sounds be pronounced?
Please see the video below to ensure you say sounds correctly
