Spring Term Week 1: Welcome back!

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and you are all ready for the new term. We have been busy this week discussing and then writing about, our Christmas holidays. We have had a circle time to re-cap the school’s golden rules to help us to make our classes happy places to be. We have been using numicon in maths activities to understand number order and value, and we will  also be doing some estimating at the end of the week. Our high frequency ‘Words of the Week’ this week are ‘we‘ ‘up‘ and ‘can‘. We practice reading these every day, please help your child by practising at home too (flash cards, hide and seek with the words hidden around the house or garden etc). We are also sharing and discussing reading books.  Next week we will be starting our theme for the term ‘Lost and Found’ by reading the story book.

Please check bookbags this week for the termly door note for this term. This includes lots of useful information for the term – please read it! You should also have had a letter explaining the weighing and measuring of all Reception children that will take place in a couple of weeks at school.

We also need large cardboard boxes for next week – shoe box size and above please! We will be making ice blocks for our role play areas. Thank you for your help!
