Glade Hill Primary and Nursery School

We are Golden and we SPARKLE


Food, glorious food    

Our new topic this term is Food, Glorious Food. We will be reading some fantastic stories such as Handa’s Surprise, The Enormous Turnip and The Tiger Who Came to Tea – and look forward to preparing and tasting lots of exciting fruits and vegetables, as well as baking cakes and preparing sandwiches for our ‘Tiger Who came to Tea’ party. We will be learning all about the traditions of Lunar Year and will be turning our role-play area into a Fruit and Vegetable shop. In Literacy we will be role-playing, re- telling and innovating stories. 



This term in maths, we will

continue to develop our subitising and counting skills and, explore the composition of numbers within and beyond 5.

In our daily phonic sessions, we will continue to develop our reading and writing skills by starting Phase 3, the children will learn sounds such as ee in week and oa in goat. We have been so impressed with the children’s enthusiasm for learning so far this academic year, and we cannot wait to get started on another new and exciting theme.

Thank you so much for your support at home. Please continue to read at least three times a week and to comment or sign in the reading diary.
