Our new topic this half term will be

Traditional Tales

Week beginning: 12/03/18

This week we shall be focusing on

Jack and the Beanstalk

Here are some areas we shall be looking at in class this week that you could try at home...


This week in Literacy, we shall be looking at the traditional tale ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. At home, you could ask your child to retell the story of Jack and the Beanstalk using Makaton signs that the children will learn in school. You could also speak to your child about alternative endings to the story.


In Maths this week, we are learning about measuring. Some ideas for you to try at home are…How many cars long is a grown ups foot? How many hand prints tall are you? How many different methods can you think of to measure? (for example, hand print, footprint, stride, tape measure, ruler etc) Can you use these different methods to measure different items around your house?

Early Years Phase Assembly

Early Years will be holding an Early Years Phase Assembly on Wednesday 21st March at 9:30am and 2:45pm for all Reception parents. Please could we ask you only attend one of the timings to watch your child in their assembly as we will also have Pre-School and Nursery parents to accommodate for both timings. Thank you.
