What are we doing this week?



Our House


This week will be exploring what makes a house a house. The children will get to create pictures of their house, talk about their house and we will even try and find their house on 'Google earth'.


We will be exploring the story of Hansel and Gretel and paying particular attention to the Gingerbread House.


On Monday afternoon we will have the first PE session of 2018, please make sure their PE is in school on Monday.


In literacy we will continue with our reading and writing. We will be finishing the handwriting families this week with the ‘Zig Zag Monsters’. These are ‘v’, ‘w’, ‘x’ and ‘z’. After that we will be revisiting all of the letters of the alphabet.


In numeracy we will be learning about the numbers from 10 – 20 and how they are made up e.g. 11 = 10+1 and 12 = 10+2 etc.


HAPPY NEW YEAR and welcome back!!


I hope you all had a great holiday and enjoyed any time you had with your children.


We will be jumping straight back into school life this week with a whole host of New Year activities. We will be finding out about their Christmas holiday and then getting the children to write, draw and paint their favourite bits.

We will be learning about New Year's resolutions and creating our own.

Read, Write, Inc will start again this week and some of the children will be in different groups.
In maths we will be counting toys to 20 and beyond.
