Thank you



We have now been teaching our new phonics programme for a few weeks and children are enjoying it making good progress.


Thank you for the time you have spent with your child completing their homework.  This will have a huge impact on their progress.


Please ensure that the folder is in your child's book bag everyday.

Thank you for your support.



Our current topic is


Living things


Over the next few weeks we are going to be learning how plants and animals grow.

We will also be thinking about ways to keep ourselves healthy and what we need to grow.


How do you keep healthy at home?  What activities do you enjoy doing that might help keep you healthy?

In maths this half term we will be learning about:




Doubling and halving

3D shapes

Time (including the days of the week and months of the year)






By the end of Reception class the expectation is for children to be able to confidently use numbers to 20.

They need to be able to recognise the numbers and be able to put them in order.

If your child is already confident with this, they can progress with numbers to 50.


This half term we will be learning more about 3D shapes and helping children to confidently name

a cube, cuboid, sphere, cone and cylinder.
