A message from Mrs Darby
I hope you have all had a fantastic Christmas holiday and have enjoyed spending some time at home with your family. I look forward to hearing all about the things you have been doing and finding out what Santa left you on Christmas morning.
This half term we will continue with our daily phonics and handwriting sessions. We will be learning a new family of letters in our handwriting sessions - the abracadabra family. I will be posting videos to support you at home with letter formation using Microsoft Teams throughout the term. We will continue to learn new phase 3 sounds this half term. Look out for details of these on our weekly newsletter.
During our maths sessions we will be learning about addition and subtraction as well as learning to recognise numbers to 20 on sight.
We have lots of exciting topics to cover this half term and we start the term with one of my favourite topics - The Polar Regions. We will then spend some time reading books by one of my favourite authors - Julia Donaldson. To finish off the half term we will be learning all about Chinese New Year.
More detailed information about our weekly maths, phonics and topic focus will be included in the weekly class newsletter. These will be sent out to you via ParentMail each Friday and can also be found on our class page below.
I am looking forward to a happy and successful half term together. If you have any questions, please speak to a member of the team at the end of the day and we will do our best to help.
Thank you for your continued support,
