Our Topic for Spring A

Our topic for this half-term is based on the book 'The Sea Saw' by Tom Percival. 

The blurb - 'When Sofia loses her beloved bear at the beach, nobody sees but the sea ...'

Through this topic we will explore things that are special to us, feelings, toys and other objects from the past, present and past times, transport and journeys. 


Home Learning and Homework

Reading books 

Each week your child will bring home a class library book for you to read with them at home and a ditty sheet or book which corresponds with the phonics group. They also have reading journals which we use to keep a record of the books the children have brought home. Please could you note down in the journal when you have read their books with them, ideally 3 times a week. Their books will be changed each Wednesday. The child's reading will develop quickly throughtout the year so the type of reading books they bring home will also change but we will add any information you need on here and in their journals as they progress. Please contact us on the class email accounts if you have any questions.

There are also some links to some online stories in the files section below. 



The children have amazed us in their phonics sessions so far. They have brought home a RWI sounds chart so they can practise their sounds at home.  Below (in the wider learning links section) is some information about the Read Write Inc Phonics programme and also a video detailing the correct sound pronucation. 



We use an online learning journey in school called Tapestry to record 'wow' moments. This can also be used at home to share any photographs or activities you have done.  Invitations have been sent out to all parents/carers who have completed the consent form.  If you have not yet received your Tapestry invite please speak to a member of staff. 



The children will take part in a PE session every Tuesday.  The children are to come into school wearing their PE kit each Tuesday.


Welly Wednesdays

On Wednesdays we will be spending more time in our school woods doing forest school activities.  If you have not yet done so please bring some named wellies to be kept in school.     

We take full advantange of our outdoor classroom, woods and fields around school, so please ensure children have their coats each day incase of poor weather.
