As readers we will be continuing to learn phase 2, 3 and 4 phonics. We will share a variety of topical stories.

Over the next few weeks, we will be bringing home some phonics activities. Please help your child complete these games.

As writers we will be learning how to form our letters correctly and also writing simple sentences. We would love to see any writing you do at home too.

We will be looking at our Community and learning about real life Superheroes like Police Officers. Hopefully we will have the police and fire service in to visit us! We even have our own fire engine in the unit!

As computer scientists we will be learning to complete simple programs on the computer and interactive white board.

As Athletes we will be developing our balance skills, we will have PE on a Wednesday and we will be learning how to move around safely in a variety of ways.

As artists we will be creating our own Superheroes and doing some observational drawings of real life Superheroes.

As musicians we will be making our own music and choreographing a dragon dance at Chinese New Year.  


Book Chatter takes place every Thursday morning 9 – 9:30 am for all pre-schoo children.

Please remember to read with your child at least three times a week and fill in your child’s reading record. All children have a Bug Club and Mathletics account where they can play a variety of fun, educational maths and phonics games. Ask a member of staff if you need support logging on! We love to hear what your child has been doing at home so please record these on Tapestry, don’t forget to read Tapestry regularly to see the adventures your children have been having! Don’t forget to bring your Imagination Library books in to school when you receive them so that we can share them as a class!
