Tuesday we start our forest school sessions. We ask that children have clothing that covers legs and arms due to brambles etc. You may wish to bring in a change of shoes as well, depending on the weather.
If your child needs to change, please put the clothing in a bag. We will have time before the session.
Please note: if your child is wearing school uniform jumpers/cardigans and trousers they will not need to get changed.

I am eagerly awaiting our first week together in Kingfisher class. On Monday, we will be reading First Day Jitters written by Julie Danneberg. We may even get to try some Jitter Juice. We will also be starting our PE lessons on Monday.
In English, we are asking questions, labelling items, making predictions and describing something extraordinary. Our learning is all linked with the story Lights on Cotton Rock.
In Maths, we will be counting objects to 100, representing numbers and partitioning numbers into 10s and 1s.
Our Art lesson this week will be drawing ourselves using pencils.
In Phonics this week introduces the dge and g graphemes, which make a j sound.
