Our Topic this week will be


Jolly Christmas Postman

Week beginning: 2/12/19

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


This week in Literacy, we will be reading the story – Jolly Christmas postman and Dear Father Christmas. The children will be focusing on using their phonics to write letters to Santa. We will be encouraging children to use the rainbow words to help them write their letter. You may want to encourage your child to write the food shopping list, a postcard or a recipe. If you do any of these activities please send them into with RJS or RVC as a subject line.


In maths this week we will be looking at repeating patterns. We will be making a paper chain of different patterns using different materials. You may want to discuss and look at different patterns on your way to school.

PE Kits

Please can we ask that all the children have a full named PE kit in school every day. The children do not need to take this home at the weekend.

Forest School

Forest School will be on Thursday Afternoons – please can all the children bring their Forest School kits in a bag and arrive to school in their school uniforms.
