Happy New Year

Happy New Year and welcome back to school!  We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break.  Many thanks for the cards and gifts we received at the end of term, they were all very much appreciated.

This term our focus story will be ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’.  We will be learning the story with actions, acting it out, sequencing the story, creating story maps and making up alternative versions.  We will also have lots of fun creating pictures and models based on the story, including making trolls from clay and building our own bridges.  In phonics we will be learning the last 12 Jolly Phonics sounds and then we will be practising using all our sounds to read and write.  During our number work we will be working on using numbers to 20 (counting, recognising and ordering numbers) and beginning to learn how to add and subtract.

We look forward to a fun and busy term.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns please do have a chat with one of us.
