Welcome back after the October break – I hope you all had a restful time. This term is a busy one – plenty of learning and other exciting activities too.
A warm welcome to Mrs Ashley Beechman, a PGDE teaching student, she will be working with us for the next five weeks.
Phonics: the three sounds as indicated in the sheet given out before half term: L, F and B.
Reading: Please continue to read daily with your child and to support them to learn the words in their word tin.
Numeracy: We are continuing with the number after and number before – please help your child by asking them what the number before 10 is, the number after 7 etc – if your child can do this confidently within 10 then move to numbers within 20 or beyond.
Our PE days will stay the same – please make sure your child has a T-shirt and shorts in their gym bag.
