This week we are learning: 

 Thank you to everyone that attended our parent workshop. Feedback was extremely positive and we really appreciated you taking time out of your day to join us at school. The slideshow will be added to this page shortly. 


This week we will be moving on to 'The Gingerbread Man', which you can watch below. On Monday morning we will be acting out the story and cooking our very own gingerbread men. The children better watch them carefully though as they may well run straight out of the oven.... watch this space!! We will continue to work on letter formation, handwriting and starting sentences with a capital letter and finishing them with a full stop. 


In Maths we will spend two more days looking at addition, on Monday we will be focusing on working out how many tens and ones (units) are in different numbers. On Tuesday we will be using a number line to find totals. The rest of the week will be spent looking at subtraction and by the end of the week the children will have a choice of what resources they would like to use to solve the subtraction problem. They will be able to choose from numicon, number lines and bead strings. If you would like to see how good you are counting backwards see if you can join in with the video below. 


The children absolutely loved yoga last week so I'm sure they will be very excited to learn some more on Monday! 


Phonics this week:
