Autumn 1


Autumn Term 1

Welcome back everyone! This term our topic is ‘Becoming Me’, inspired by a different story each week we will look at some different characteristics such as kindness, teamwork, resilience, respect and responsibility. This of course incorporates our three school R’s.

With our maths, we will be working with the Ten Town characters to not only recognise numerals but also build a deeper understanding of how each number is made up and can be represented.


Phonics has already begun and we are developing our recognition of the first set of Read Write INC. sounds and introducing blending to support children’s reading. Below is a link to further explain Read Write Inc. and help you get used to the sounds.

Reading books are to be sent home each Monday to read with your child, some may have no words but allow for great storytelling and chat. As your child learns the sounds books with words will be introduced. Please also enjoy other stories, such as picture books and fairy tales, with your children throughout the week. Oxford Owl gives you access to more reading books and storybooks to read with your child and the login for our class is below. - Click on My Class Login

This term we will be doing Muddy Mondays on a Monday and P.E on a Tuesday and Friday and children need to be coming to school in the appropriate clothing on those days.

School Lunch Menu’s will be emailed out on a Wednesday to be returned on the Friday in preparation for the following week.

Do check back on the website regularly to see pictures of what we have been up to.
