Welcome to our class page. We hope you had an amazing summer. For our first term in school our class topic will be " Do you want to be friends?" Through this topic we will get to know the children and support the children getting to know each other.We will be using stories and non fiction texts about friendship to facilitate our learning. Have a look at the Topic link to find out more. We will be very active this term and have lots of opportunites to explore numbers and shapes.
Children should use opportunities to develop their reading skills by looking for words in the world around them and playing word games such as pairs or snap.
We will send home a reading book each day with your child. Take time to share the book with your child asking questions about the story. This is a very valuable time encouraging children to further develop their love of books.
We will be doing PE on a Monday and a Thursday.
