Welcome to the Spring Term.
This term we are focusing on traditional stories such as The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood.
Phonics will be taught in groups which exactly match your child's ability and we will continue to develop phonic ability in our daily phonics lessons.
In Mathematics, as well as continuing to develop the ability to use numbers, we will explore Shape, Space and Measure. We will teach the Mathematical names for both 2D and 3D shapes and explore weight, size, capacity and distance. We will also begin to learn about time and money.
We have introduced a Maths library this term and hope you will enjoy using these new games at home. Please let us know using Tapestry.
Please read with your child every day, even a few minutes really does make a difference. If you would like any guidance or further resources please talk to us.
Some things we have been enjoying in Cherry Class.
We have PE With our Sports Coach Mr Wolfe on Monday mornings (half the class attend Forest school, half attend PE). Please ensure your child has suitable, named indoor and outdoor PE kit in school.
Forest school is an inspirational process that offers everybody the opportunity to achieve and develop confidence and self esteem through hands on learning experiences in our on-site woodland. Our Forest School sessions are on Monday mornings.
Things we need
Please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled with your child's name
Our door is always open if you need to discuss anything or simply want to find out more please talk to us. Tapestry is a good way of checking what we have been up to. You can upload photographs and information for us to enjoy as well (if you need any help with this please just ask).
