The Autumn term topic is...

'3,2,1 Blast off!’



 Tuesday PM - Yoga



Children will continue to take home a reading book and reading log book each week. Please use the log book to record when they have read and a short message of how they got on. Please ensure children have these in their book bags each school day. We will also be sending home a book from our school library which will give you a chance to read to spend some time enjoying books with your child. 

Children also have their own Tapestry Early Learning Journal online and remember you can add observations of your child from home which can count towards appropriate assessment.

There is also a small yellow homework book sent home each Friday with a short activity linked to either their Maths/Phonics learning. This needs to be returned no later than Wednesday AM.

This term we will begin to send out spellings to practise. Please do not panic, this is just a great way for the children to develop their segmenting skills. Words will be matched to their current phonic knowledge using graphemes from phase 2/3.


Please try and read with your child 5 times a week, this can be for 10 minutes whilst they settle for bed.
