Our digraphs and trigraphs - how many do you know?

Read Write Inc have released some books matched to our scheme online, if you wish to do some extra reading with your child.


Please match their colour book to the colour they usually bring home.

Purple Mash

When you child logs in they can explore lots of fun activities.

They will also have some "to dos" - click of the red "to do" button at the top left hand side. These are set by me and will help them explore different parts of the app.


Our topic this half term is ... 

Would you like to live on the moon?

Our topic this half term is space. Teddy Bob has been to space school in NASA and now he wants to live on the moon. We are going to learn all we can about the moon and the planets in the solar system so we can help him decide if this is a good idea.
We will be discussing the difference between fact and fiction and much of our work will be around non-fiction books.

NASA has a very good website with lots of videos of astronauts on the space station - we will be watching some of these to think about designing and flying rockets.

We will also be learning the Solar System song ...

EYFS Stars Of The Week

Our topic this half term is 

How cold is snow?

We have been learning all about snowflakes, ice and cold colours. Did you know all snowflakes have 6 dendrites?

We love daily counting along our number line - it now goes up to 39!

We have been measuring to see if we can fit numbers all the way to 100. 

We have made an extra long sparkly pointing stick so everyone can take turns pointing to our numbers.
