We will start work on a home work project -  'Festivals and Celebrations'.

Later on in this term, we will be looking at some Christmas stories. We will be creating lots of  fun and exciting art based around the festive season. 



ReadingPlease can you read with your child for at least 10 minutes a day.

Phonics, Phonics, Phonics!!

In Phonics, we will be looking at Phase 2 and 3 of letters and sounds.

We will begin to blend our phase 2 sounds to read and write words, for example: c-a-t  = cat       ch-i-p = chip 

The sounds we will be  focusing on in Phase 2  include; s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, l


and in Phase 3 include;  j, v, w, x, y, z, zz, qu, ch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee, igh, oa, oo (book), oo (room), ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, air.  



Parents/carers can help us at home by practicing letter formation and identifying these sounds in words in our reading books. 

Ask your teacher for your individual child’s focus sounds for the week!



In Numeracy, we will be looking at repeating patterns, counting forward and backward to 20, finding 1 more than a given number and addition partition. 

Parents can help us practise this by getting children to count the total number of items in two groups by counting all of the items in both groups.

Our Termly Topic

 We will be looking at traditional tales this term, focusing our literacy and creative work around these stories


The EYFS Framework


Throughout Nursery and Reception, we deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile. We use this to teach each child, considering their level of development and any additional needs. A copy of this can be viewed here :

Staff are always on hand to discuss your child’s development and give advice or practical support on how to encourage learning at home as well as at school! We are happy to help!
