Welcome back after the Christmas holidays. We hope you had a restful and enjoyable break. If you have any photos of your children sharing family celebrations and traditions, please do share these with us on tapestry as they contribute to our assessment of your child's development in 'People and Communities'. Thank you.
This half term our topic is 'Friends and Family' and we will be sharing some traditional tales, 'The Mitten' and 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears', as well as the classic story 'Owl Babies'. In RE, we will be learning about friendship and in Maths we will be beginning to think about how numbers can be broken up in different ways (so 5 can be 4 and 1, 3 and 2 or 5 and 0, for example). We will also be starting our new Jigsaw PSHE scheme.
During this half-term, we will be learning about Chinese New Year, which will include some tasty cooking and some very special visitors, so do look out on tapestry for this. You may like to have a look in the library for some books about Chinese New Year or check out the cbeebies 'Let's Celebrate' video which we will be sharing in school for some more information on this festival.
