Forest Skills wil take place every Thursday afternoon, in terms 1 and 4. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit and has a waterproof coat and Wellington boots.



The first fortnight of school will have a focus on Wellbeing and Mental Health. . The children will be participating in lots of creative activities which will help them to express themselves and discuss their feelings.



As part of our Wellbeing fortnight, for English, we will be focusing our work around the book  'Freedom We Sing' by Amyra Leon. This lovely book will give the children the opportunity to demonstrate their writing and reading skills and will link well to our focus on Wellbeing.

After completing a lovely unit on the book 'Freedom We Sing' we will be reading the wonderful book Paddington by Michael Bond.


The children will only be required to bring their book bags in on Friday for Year 1 and Thursday for Year 2 . This should include their Reading Record and school reading books.  These will be changed and sent home the same day. The children will take home to read 1 book for Year 1 children and 3 book  for Year 2 children each week.


We will be recapping the letter and sound patterns that the children learnt last year as well as introducing them to new patterns that would have been introduced during the school closure. This will ensure they have a solid understanding before moving onto  either the Y1 or Y2 Curriculum. 



The first unit in Maths this term we will be looking at place value
