Week beginning 7th January 2019


Welcome back everyone and a happy new year to you all! We have had a brilliant start to our spring term. The children have come back to school refreshed and ready to learn lots of new things this term. We were lucky enough to have some frosty weather this week and the children thoroughly enjoyed going on an ‘ice hunt’ and experimenting with how long it took to melt, and what shapes of ice they could find.

We finished the last few sounds in jolly phonic book 6, the digraphs ch, sh and th and these have been added to the children’s sound books to practise at home. On Wednesday, whilst learning about the ‘ch’ digraph, we cooked some chips in the craft area for the children all to have a little taste and hopefully they will all remember this digraph now! We’ve been doing lots of segmenting and blending with the new sounds and we have really enjoying hearing about what the children have had for Christmas. The children have been writing sentences in their literacy books using their sounds and tricky words to help them. During maths we have been revising and consolidating everything learnt last term and the children have completed some maths assessments.

Over the next few weeks we will be starting a new topic all about ‘people who help us’. We are busy arranging for different people from the community to come into school and talk to the children. If you work in this kind of role e.g. police officer, doctor etc and would have happy to come into school dressed in your uniform to talk to the children about what you do we’d love to hear from you!


We will be having a ‘jolly phonics party’ which will be a celebration of the children learning all the sounds in the jolly phonics programme on Thursday 7th February at 9.15am in the school hall. Parents and carers are invited to come along and watch the children perform all the sounds and actions from the sounds they have learnt and then afterwards they will have some party food and games. We’d love to see you there.


Our last two stars of the week before Christmas were Amelia and Holly. Amelia did some fantastic careful cutting with the scissors and is a super listener on the carpet. She is always kind and helpful to members of staff and so caring to her friends. Well done Amelia! Holly worked really hard on some lovely writing and wowed me with her careful reading, segmenting and blending lots of new words, well done Holly!

Have a great weekend,

The EYFS team
