Hello Frogs,


Welcome back to a new school year - I hope you enjoyed the summer break and are ready for a year full of new and exciting learning!


This term, we are looking at Traditional Tales in Literacy. We will be using 'Talk 4 Writing' to help us retell the story of, 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and we will be looking at changing some parts of the story to create our own versions later in the term. Following on from this, we will be doing our non-fiction topic is going to involve our school dog, Buddy! He cannot wait to join in with our learning.


In Maths, we are looking at numbers, numbers, numbers! We will practice their formation, look at what each number 'means', and do lots of counting in ones. Like last year, 'Flashback 4's' will be completed in every lesson to help us remember and practice what we have previously learned in Maths.


This term, our homework focus is on reading; reading fluency, and reading for pleasure. Please spend some time looking at books with your grown-ups and practice reading the words with them. Do tell me any books you have read, it is always nice to recommend books to friends! 


Our uniform has changed back to what is was before Covid-19; black trousers, a red polo shirt, and a navy jumper. Please remember to wear black shoes and bring some black plimsolls to wear inside (we like to go outside whatever the weather!).


As always, if you have any questions or would like any help, please find me at one of the school gates (morning and afternoon) or, alternatively ring the school office to make an appointment. 


Keep smiling,


Miss Collins :)
