Reading Homework


The majority of children are now on Reading books and are taking home word boxes containing words to learn. Please spend a few minutes daily with your child and their book - please don't be trying to make tea at the same time or your child will feel you do not value their efforts. We have known some in the past who 'told' the story to their parents but they were not actually reading the written words that were on the page!

We know it's time consuming-but your attention will be repaid over and over as they become keen readers.


This half term we will be looking at

Getting to know Jesus


We will be learning about the great love that Jesus has for us and the ways in which we can show our love for Him.  We will be hearing stories of Jesus curing the sick and will be thinking of ways that we can help the sick.  We will begin to understand that Jesus is the Son of God through   His first Miracle at Cana and we will re-enact it in class.

This half term our theme is...

Where does snow go?


We will be looking at snow and considering what happens to it, how it changes and what it does to the landscape.We will be looking at clothing and animals living in cold climates.

Any resources you may have at home to assist in this topic will be welcome. Thank you!

Reading Stories to your Child

A bedtime story is a lovely way for you and your child to end a busy day. 

They get a few minutes of Mummy/Daddy time all to themselves. Children who are read to, are more likely to become keen readers when they get older.
