What will we be learning about this term?

We would like to invite you to take part in our half termly learning projects this year. 
These hands-on 'mini' projects will give your child an opportunity to explore the world around them in a fun and exciting new way.
 Most importantly, your child will have the opportunity to work alongside their favourite teacher... YOU!


Task 1: "Secret Festive Messages" 

What: Design a card for a classmate with a special message
Cards must not be store bought. Use the card stock provided and be as creative as you can. Children can draw pictures, add stickers, collage with Christmas wrap etc.


When: Cards due Friday 13th December


What is... RWI?



This year, your child will be taking part in a daily Read, Write, Inc. (RWI) phonics session. 

This is a very successful programme that will enable your child to read and write independently and confidently. Each day your child will learn a new sound and will be taught how to put these sounds together to read words. They will also practice writing these letters and gain the knowledge and skills to write words and simple sentences independently.


  Sound Set 1

Week 1: m  a  s  d  t
Week 2: i  n  p  g  o

Week 3:  c  k  u  b  f
Week 4:  e  l  h  sh  r
Week 5: j  v  y  w  th
Week 6:  z  ch  qu  x  ng/nk.



Your child has been given a Home Learning Book with the sounds they have already been taught. Please help your child by hearing, saying and writing the new sounds. You can also help by reading and practicing words that contain the new sounds.  Please ensure your child's Red Home Learning Book is returned daily. If you have any questions about your child's home learning, don't hesitate to ask one of the reception teachers.

Have you been on to access Teach Your Monster to Read? This will help your child learn their sounds and begin learning how to blend and segment words. Great for beginning readers! Click the picture below to go to the website. You can find your child's login details in their Homework Book.

How should I say the sounds? - RWI. Pronunciation Guide

This video from Ruth Miskin shows you how to pronounce sounds in a pure way. This will help your child to hear each individual sound more easily which will give them the confidence when spelling and writing. For more information and videos, please visit or ask one of our lovely Reception teachers; they are more than happy to help!

Barnaby Bear could be coming home with you!


Each week, Barnaby will choose a child to go home with for the weekend. Barnaby loves to go on adventures. If you go to the park or beach, take Barnaby with you - he likes to explore. Barnaby Bear has his very own scrapbook so that you and your child can write about your awesome adventures together. It would be great if you could take some photos also or even draw some pictures. We can't wait to hear all about your time with Barnaby Bear!



We welcome a £1 voluntary contribution towards class
funds each week. This helps with the purchase of
exciting resources for crafts, cooking ingredients and
the funding of special events and end of term celebrations!
