Space and Sky 

This half term, we will be basing lots of our learning around Julia Donaldson books. These books are great for rhyming, allowing the children to join in with repeated phrases and alliteration which are all great literacy skills for communication and language. We will look at the books The Smeds and The Smoos, What the Ladybird Heard and Jack and the Flum Flum tree. We will have a geography based half term linked to some of our stories thinking about mapping skills and linking it to mapping in our own area of Holmes Chapel.

General Information

PE days - this half term, PE will be indoors and on a Thursday afternoon. We will be working with the children to get changed independently during this time too. 


Each week, your child will bring home a phonics sheet for homework. This informs you of the new sounds that we have been learning and gives you words to practise with your child. In addition, you will later have a list of tricky words to keep practising on a ongoing basis. These words are words that are common in their reading books and need to read from sight. Therefore, it is important that the children have a lot of practice with these to become more familar and confident with them.
