* Homework - is given out every Thursday and should be returned on Monday. Homework includes: home reading (3 parent signatures required), a Jolly Phonics activity and one other piece to be completed.

Our value this half term is FAIRNESS. Don't forget to complete your values task at home - it could be included on our next newsletter!
This half term, we will be learning all about ourselves. Our Topic is "All About Me". We will be creating our own set of class rules and beginning to establish a new routine. The children will also be taking part in a range of fun learning games to enable us to make new friends and get to know other members of the class.
The staff will also be carrying out a number of important language and learning assessment activities, in order to establish a starting point for each child's Learning Journey in Reception.
Later in the half term, we will be focusing on other family members and sharing some of the special times we have spent taking part in outings, celebrations and other special memories. This will help us to get to know individual interests, and use them to plan meaningful learning opportunities within the classroom.
