If you have any questions, thoughts or resources you would like to share please do come in and see us.

Thank you for your continued support.



In English we are reading stories linked to bonfire night. We are looking at descriptive sentences using our senses and writing our own. 

 'Daily readers' has been working really well! By giving the children a reading day we are able to assess their reading each week. (Teacher/T.A) Thank you to all the parents who have listened to children read in addition to this. It makes a real difference. 

If you listen to your child read at home please write a comment in their organiser. 

Thank you for supporting your child with their target words each week. Don't forget to ask your child to put their words into sentences on the back.  (Little and often is the key!) 


Great App!!!!

'Teach your monster to read' is a fantastic app to download onto your phone or tablet. 




Our Maths learning over the next few weeks will focus on Addition & Subtraction within 10 and Shape.

We will be reading, writing and interpreting mathematical statements involving addition (+), subtraction (-) and equals (=) signs. Adding and subtracting one digit numbers to 10, including zero and solving one step problems that involve addition and subtraction, using concrete objects and pictorial representations and missing number problems. 

In Shape we will be recognising and naming common 2-D shapes and 3-D shapes.

The children have been learning number bonds within 10 to help them with addition and subtraction calculations. Key Instant Recall Facts will be sent home the first week back after half term. Please can you help your child learn these important number bonds for each number to 6. The aim is for them to recall these facts instantly. The secret to success is practising little and often. You can play Number bond pairs online at 





We will be carrying out a year long experiment, observing Seasonal changes on trees.



This half term we will be finding out about Animals, including Humans.

We will be identifying and naming a variety of common animals - birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians and mammals. We will be describing and comparing the structure of a variety of common animals. We will be identifying animals that are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. We will also be identifying the basic body parts of the human body and identifying our senses and the part of the body associated with each sense.
