Thursday 26th January
Puppet making — parents and carers are invited to come and make puppets with their child during the    morning.


We aim to use the outdoor area as much as possible during the winter months and it would be useful if the children could bring in wellingtons to wear. Please could you ensure they are named. Thank you.

Things to Do at Home

Your children will still be bringing home their reading folders on a Friday. Please encourage them to ‘read’ words around the home, the supermarket and whilst out and about. For example signs, labels, packets and magazines.

We will also be looking at forming numbers correctly and any help you could give would be appreciated.

All the children would benefit from any opportunities to cut paper with scissors. It may be that they cut the pictures off the Christmas cards or pictures out of a catalogue.

Letters and Sounds

Library Books

Children will bring home their reading folder on a Friday. Please ensure these are returned to school by the following Wednesday so that new work can be given.
​We visit the school library every week to listen to and use a story sack before choosing a library book to share with you. Please return it to school on Monday so that your child can make use of our well resourced library.

Water Bottles

​Please remember that your child is only allowed water in their school drinks bottle which they keep in the classroom. Please ensure it contains fresh water each morning.

PE Kits

​PE will continue to take place on a Wednesday and Thursday. Please can PE kit be school on these days.
