Spring Newsletter


Welcome back!

Welcome to our spring newsletter. This term is going to be really busy as usual. In our history based topic unit, children will learn about popular toys through the 20th century and the early 21st century. They will investigate the materials that toys were made from and how this has differed through time.

Our English work will be a mixture of traditional tales and instructions, which will help us to use some of the grammar and punctuation we are currently exploring. We will be working really hard in Phonics lessons to help boost our reading and writing. Please remember to read every night and bring your book bags into school every day.

Maths will build on our previous learning. The numbers are getting bigger but we can do this! We will carry on recognising, counting and ordering numbers up to 20, before moving on to addition and subtraction within 20. 

This half term our PE is on Monday afternoon. Please make sure your child’s PE kits are in school and all items are clearly labelled with their name. Remember PE kit consists of black pumps, black shorts and a white T-shirt.

If there are any questions about this term, please do not hesitate to contact us.
