This week we are learning ...

This week we are linking our learning to Valentines day and having a love week..

As wonderful writers we will… Use the sounds we know to write words and captions. Try to write some of our tricky words. Create special Valentines writing.

As magnificent mathematicians we will… Look at which numbers we can add together to make 5 or 10. We will do this by counting objects accurately. Using objects to help us. Numicon is a great way to see how many are left.

As amazing artists and lovely learners we will … Develop our printing skills. Create artwork by using a range of objects to print with.

As magical musicians we will… Join in singing songs. Explore the different sounds of instruments.

As resilient readers we will… Practise linking sounds to letters. Try to use our sound knowledge to help use recognise sounds in our shared read books and reading books. Discuss the story thinking about how characters feel and predict what might happen next.

We will also share stories about love and discuss them together.

As awesome athletes we will … Practise kicking a ball and then try to kick a ball towards a target. Use our excellent listening skills to follow a yoga sequences.

As clever cooks we will… Listen carefully to instructions. Follow instructions to create heart biscuits.

As lovely learners we will … Learn why Valentines day is celebrated. Look at why we send Valentines cards.


Our next local walk will take place Tuesday 12th February with Mrs Calver and Mrs Witmore to visit our local area. The children will observe their local environment and the world around them, observe changes that happen in the environment and discuss these.


As phenomenal phonics experts we are recapping our knowledge of sounds and tricky words.

We are using the sounds we have learnt so far to practise partner reading books.

Parent Helpers Welcome!

We welcome parents into school, to help our children to improve their reading skills.  If you are able to spare a morning or an afternoon, on a regular basis, please let your child’s teacher know.  We are very appreciative of your additional support, and it makes a huge difference to the children’s learning.  We would love you to come and join us!  Tea and coffee provided too!

Reading Challenge

Don’t forget to read for 5 minutes, 5 times a week!  Your reading Challenge Slip must be returned on MONDAY MORNING so the ‘scores on the doors’ can be collated by class teachers during registration and sent to the school office.   A KS1 class has never topped the leader board!  We need 75% of our classes to read to meet Mrs Ashford’s challenge.  Class Prizes available too.  Come on EYFS let’s keep reading!


In the Spring term we will continue to build on our number knowledge and introduce numbers 11-20. Children need to be able to …

  • Count reliably from 1-20.
  • Place numbers 1-20 in order.
  • Say which number is 1 more or one less than a given number (1-20).

Along with number knowledge children also need to be able to:

  • Name and recognise 2d and 3d shapes.
  • Describe the position of themselves using words such as ‘next to’ and ‘behind’.
  • Order items based on their height, length, weight or capacity.
  • Use objects to create patterns and build models.

In the Autumn term we have focused on numbers 1-10 to ensure we have a good knowledge of the skills and techniques to allow us to apply these to other numbers.

We love singing our counting songs here are some links to some so you can sing them at home:






We have been learning about 2d shapes, we are beginning to recognise shapes based on their properities and identifying them by their names.

We have been using shapes, colours and objects to help us recreate patterns.

We have been ordering objects based on their height and length using the words shortest, tallest, smallest and longest to help us. We have also used scales to compare the weight of objects using the words light and heavy to help us.
