First Week of the New Year


What a fabulous first week we have had!

The children have settled into the rules and routines of the classroom brilliantly and have worked so hard even though it is a big jump from Reception! We are looking forward to the year ahead and cannot wait to see the progress the children make.

Although we have only been in school for 3 days we have filled them with lots of learning!

In English, we have been busy working hard reading our new Read Write Inc texts in our different groups. We have been focusing on spelling using the sounds we know and our Fred Fingers and have been practising our letter formation.

In Maths, we have developed our knowledge of number by ordering numbers 0-20 and finding the missing numbers on the number tracks. We have also practised our number formation and are aiming to consistently form these correctly.


We have used water colours to create the front cover of our topic books ready to start our lessons next week. Our topic this half term is based around the Victorians with our enquiry question being ‘What was life like before the TV’. More details can be found on the Topic grid which was sent home today.

Important Information:

Reading books are due in at least once a week.

Home Learning is given out on Fridays and is expected to return the following Wednesday.

This week the children have been asked to access Active Learn.

Percy the Panda is the class mascot who travels from Friday and returns to school on Monday.

Our P.E days are on a Monday.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Collinson
