Literacy and Reading

We will be reading lots of Fantasy Stories about Monsters and learning what characters we would find lurking in them.  We will also be reading all about where monsters like to hide.  The children will have a daily phonics session and we will be trying really hard to apply what we are learning in our reading and our writing.  It is so important that you read with your child at least 3x a week so they have the chance to see the sounds they have learned in words.  This will really help both their reading and writing to progress and be ready for the year ahead.






This half term we will learn about Place Value and using numbers to 40 in our reading and writing work.  We will learn about the value of each digit and which is the tens and which is the ones.  We will be using our knowledge to problem solve.  We will also try to defeat the next superhero and show we know our skills!



P.E is on a Thursday.

 Please ensure your child has a correct P.E. kit in school so that we can do PE outside in the lovely summer weather (white t-shirt, black shorts and sport shoes).

If your child wears earrings is it important they can remove them themselves or you do it in the morning please.  We cannot put plasters over earrings.



Please can you make sure you read with your child at least three times a week and write it in their reading journal to help towards their 'Red-Ted' award. Diaries will be checked for RED TED on a Friday.  Look out for Billy and Bettie Bookworm who will start appearing soon.  If your child finds either bookworm and returns it to school after they have completed their 3 reads they can earn an extra prize.

Let's see who can earn their RED TED TEDDY first!

Finally, please remember to always..


It is important to follow our Golden Rules any time, any place, any where.  We like to be PROUD of our children so look out for Marvellous Me's coming when your children have been BRILLIANT.
