- PE and Swimming lessons - We really enjoy our PE and swimming lessons, please check your child’s timetable to ensure you are aware of which days these lessons happen. If your child is unwell, please follow the school policy regarding absence from school. It is an important part of the currirulum, and therefore if children are in school they should be participating in these lessons. Please be reminded that the children are fully dried and hairdryers are used in colder weather months, perhaps include a winter hat on swimming days if you are worried about them being cold. Please alert your child’s class teacher if they are not taking part due to medical reasons. Thank you for your support.
- Let’s Be Friends! We will be excited to welcome new friends to our classes in January and teach them how we look after each other and show kindness to our friends at school. We are very good at playing together inside the classroom and on the playground. We supervise the playground very carefully, adults are positioned at key points, with two adults availiable to move around and play games with the children. All adults wear high visibility vests so that they can see each other and be seen quickly by the children.
PERSONAL SOCIAL EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND WELLBEING: Core competencies and friendship
We have really enjoyed meeting our new friends! We’ve also had lots of fun remembering how to play nicely with our friends at school and have been practising using lovely manners when speaking to others.
Sometimes, we know it is difficult to always agree with our friends, so we will also look at how to deal with conflict and disagreements to make sure that everyone is happy. We want everyone to feel happy at school and so we will teach the children how important it is to listen to our friends’ ideas.
We will be working on “friendships”as an ongoing theme over this term. What does being a good friend look like? How can we all work together?
In our classrooms we will also be learning about some new animal friends who will help us to be our best, such as ‘Persevering Parrots’, ‘Trying Turtles’ and ‘Proud Peacocks’. Watch this space to hear more about them.
Friends, listen, share, happy, kind, respect, agree/disagree
MATHS: Count away and add them up!
We will practise recognising different numbers within 30 and beyond. We will practise counting groups of objects carefully, saying each number in sequence one by one.
We will practise finding the total amount when add 2 numbers together using objects and our fingers to help us. We will begin to count along a numberline to find the answer as well.
Total, number, add, order, bigger, smaller, count on, practise
PHONICS: Using our sounds for writing
We have really enjoyed our work learning about Read Write Inc sounds, and we have remembered so much of our phonics work over the holidays.
We will be showing our teachers how amazing we are with our writing by applying all the sounds we know.
Blend, read, write, phonics, letters, sounds
LITERACY: Speaking and using our voices
We will be thinking about speaking English with our friends and using our voice in different ways. We will think about how we sound if something is funny, or if something is scary as well as how we use our voices when speaking to friends, adults, on the playground or our classroom.
Loud voice, quiet voice, friendly voice, angry voice, volume
We will talk about winter.

Het podium staat klaar in de Nederlandse klas dus de voorstelling kan beginnen. Deze week dansen en zingen we met Jules. We luisteren naar allerlei geluiden en bewegen op verschillende muziekgenres. Met allerlei slaginstrumenten bedenken we zachte, luide, trage en vlugge ritmes. . Kan jij ook muziek maken met je eigen lichaam?
In Villa Letterpret rijmen we erop los met allerlei woorden uit de theaterwereld.
