Welcome back!

Thank you to everyone who found time to hear their children read over Christmas. We really see the impact in class.

This week the children had their first French lesson. They were very excited! In Maths we have been solving simple subtraction practically using dice and counters. The children have also began to record their number sentences. In Literacy we listened to a sound clip of an emergency. The children then had to think about what they had heard. They made responses through drawings and discussion. This has introduced our new topic; 999 Emergency! We have noticed that the children need a push with handwriting and letter formation. We will be focusing more on this as we continue to deliver the curriculum.
