Thank you

 This term we have lots of exciting topics. These include Percy the Park Keeper, Chinese New Year, making pancakes, Mother’s, day, the Post Office and Easter. These topics will encompass all the areas of learning in the Early Years curriculum. Our  Talk for Writing stories are ‘One Snowy Night’ and ‘The Big Pancake’ and the children will be bringing these home to share with you in their story books.


We will continue with daily handwriting, phonics, shared writing and maths sessions, and keyword checks. Once a week there will be group guided reading. P.E and music lessons will be every Thursday  morning taken by Mr Irish and Mrs Midenda.


We will be introducing a new session to the timetable ‘Investigation’ time.  These lessons will focus on fun discovery and hands on learning about the world around them.


 We have been extremely pleased with the good progress that the children have made.  We need to continue with moving the children to reach their full potential in the Foundation Stage in readiness for the National Curriculum in Year 1.
