Happy New Year! Welcome back to the new half term.  The children were so excited to back and have been switched on and eager t learn.  It was lovely to see them all again and we are looking forward to another successful half term.



In English the children have been looking at character descriptions for Mr Nobody . the children were very good understanding his feelings and their emotive language reflected this.   We have also introduced our new story book, The Most Magnificent Thing.  The children have already started making predictions and using adjectives to describe it.  We are continuing to work on Capital letters, full stops and finger spaces,



In maths we have been been consolidating our place value knowledge using resources, we have had lots of fun making numbers with base ten,ten frames, numicon and even straw bundle!.



Children have moved into their new phonics groups or have moved on to a new phase.  They are working hard on their phonic sound and a tricky word, each day. We have been impressed with how the children have been focused and working so hard in phonic sessions too!!



All children will read with both Miss Warner and Mrs Hudson 1:1 every week.  If they have read at least three times and they have read all of their book, we will then change their book.  We encourage children to re-read their reading books to encourage fluency and understanding.  Many thanks with this.  



The children had a wonderful time when the Pantomime came into school. The production of 'The Beauty and the Beast' as fantastic!
