Welcome back everybody! We hope you had a lovely Christmas break.

We are very excited about all of the amazing activities that Spring will bring.

This half term we will be learning all about the Arctic and the amazing animals that live there! We will then be flying down to Antarctica to learn lots of exciting facts about penguins.

In maths we will be developing our measuring skills. You can support your child by talking about real objects that are different sizes in your homes. Can they order your families shoes from smallest to largest?

In phonics we will continue to use our letter sounds to write sentences and will be focusing on tricky words, you can learn our tricky words with your child by watching the Tricky Words songs together on YouTube  https://youtu.be/ri4u0TjAZ38

We will be continuing with our Guided Reading sessions and encouraging the children to use their magic finger to point to each word. You can help your child by sharing books with them at home on a regular basis.

Can you also make sure that your child has a bag of spare clothes on their peg. Please remember to put your child’s name in everything.

Also, please remember to keep an eye on the weather forecast. If cold weather is predicted then please dress your child in warm clothes and a coat. We will be spending

 lots of time exploring outside this term so our clothing will be important.

If you have any questions please just pop in and see us. We are always happy to help.

Thank you for your support.


Mrs Neil, Miss O’Toole and the Reception team.
