Welcome back! We had such a fun last half term making cakes and apple crumble, meeting Spot the dog’s friend Alfie, car washing, making Diva lamps and dancing in an Indian dance workshop.
Our topic for this half term is “How is the world filled with colour?” We will be talking about different celebrations so if you have any events coming up, please talk to your child and bring in photographs for them to talk about it in class.

The children have settled well into our class routines and this half term we will be continuing to help the children become more independent. Please let them take their coats and winter clothes off on their own. Show them how to retrieve their sleeves when they have gone inside the coat. Let them get changed into their school uniform so they know how to get changed for PE. This term we will have PE on Monday with Mr Fosh and children will continue with PE groups on Wednesday.
We are continuing to cover Phase 2 sounds in phonics and then we will be moving on to Phase 3 sounds. We are encouraging the children to label pictures using their initial sounds. Please ensure that they are writing their name in the precursive font.
In maths we will be continuing to count and recognise numbers (to 20), sorting things into groups, comparing quantities (bigger/smaller, more/ less), and continuing to talk about times of the day (morning, afternoon, night, breakfast, lunch, dinner, bath time, story time, bed time).
Please read with your child every day. It greatly increases their vocabulary, understanding and love of reading.
