Dear Parents,

It has been another busy week with a focus on Cinderella. The children have enjoyed thinking of new and exciting ways for Cinderella to travel to the ball. Remember to dress up as a character from the story tomorrow!


This week in Phonics we have continued to revise all of our Phase 3 sounds and tricky words. Next week we will be focusing on Phase 4 (we do not learn new sounds but learn to read and write words with more consonants together). We will also be learning the tricky words ‘said’ and ‘have’.


Next week we will be focusing on addition. We will be using objects and playing beanbag throwing games to help us learn this in a fun and practical way!


We will be starting our new topic ‘Superheroes’ and learning the story of ‘Superkid’. The children will be creating their own ‘Superkids’ and inventing some exciting super powers and skills.

Things to try at home this week

  • Practise ordering numbers up to 20. You could also make number cards together and then play snap or pairs.
  • Maybe you could decide on your superhero costumes for our parent involvement morning?

Have a great weekend!

Miss Mabin and Mrs Burkill
