Our Journey

The children have had a great start to their first term in school. They are settling in to the new routines well. 
Today they have brought a reading book home. Please read daily with your child. They can change their books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please place the book inside their reading diary and place them in the box on the class trolley. If you need any advice please call in to see us, our door is always open. Thank you for your support.

assembly in front of the whole school and parents. 
We had 'The broken egg' crime scene and investigation trail and objects to explore from possible story characters.

Friday 20th October
What a busy few weeks we have had. In our literacy the Gingerbread man went missing. Have you seen him? The children made posters to inform the rest of the school that he had gone. They were concerned that he had been eaten by a fox! What wonderful imaginations.

The children have shown great progress in their phonics this half term; this is evident in the increase of choice reading.

In numeracy the children have been looking at shapes, learning about the similarities and differences between them. Then the children have learnt positional language in both their adult focused numeracy and independent outdoor play.

Have a lovely week enjoying the wonderful Autumn weather. Thank you for your support
