Happy New Year! It is lovely to see the children returning to school with such a positive attitude and ready to learn lots of new things!
Our Talk for Writing text is Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers and the children are already enjoying re-telling the story and using the signs we have practised.
We will start to learn some new sounds next week (Phase 3). This week we have re-capped our Phase 2 sounds and have practised reading and writing VC words (words with 2 sounds in). For homework we have asked if you can support your child to read and write the following VC words and to see if you can put them in a sentence:
am, in, at, up, on, if, off
Our Talk Topic this week is linked to the 'Lost and Found' text. We are asking if you can support your child to make a boat which we can test to see if it floats or sinks next Thursday (16th)! We can't wait to see the children's different ideas for their boats, we will be sure to show you in the website gallery pages how we get on!

We hope you have a lovely Christmas and wanted to say thank you for the lovely cards and generous gifts. Enjoy the holidays, we're looking forward to seeing you in the new year!
Class RC are so excited about Christmas, we were so proud of them in their Christmas performance and hope you enjoyed watching it.
We have been busy doing lots of Christmas activities such as making paper chains of different lengths with repeating patterns, following instructions about how to make decorations, making Christmas cards, making models with 'snow dough' making our own wrapping paper with repeating patterns, making presents and listening to Christmas stories. Have a look in the gallery!
We have been talking about our 4 b's and giving examples of how we use these in class when we're learning, looking after our classroom, ourselves and each other!
