New Year Welcome

After all the excitement of Chirstmas, we’re back and ready to go! I’d like to thank everyone who helped with our Christmas celebrations. Don’t forget to keep an eye on Twitter and Tapestry to see what we get up to! Please see below the curriculum plan for this term.


In Maths this half term the children will continue to work on place value and begin to work on multiplication and division, fractions and time. 
I wonder if they can help you tell the time at home!


In English Cherry Class will work on question sentences, the features of letters and writing letters. We will also begin work around the story “Lost and Found” by Oliver Jeffers, including acting out the story, retelling it and creating our own version.

Topic and Science

This half terms topic is Freezing Explorers! We will be looking into the lives of explorers of the past who took the dangerous journey to the south pole. We will be working to find the best material to protect freezing explorers and will create some polar animal artwork. In RE we will be learning about Special Stories in Islam.


Each child will continue to have 3 reading books per week. EYFS will now have their individual reading book. Please support your child to read their individual reading book independently.
Don’t forget to note down any books you’ve read at home in their reading record too! We love to hear about all books!
Year 1 and Year 2 will continue to have weekly spellings.

Phonics and Spellings

EYFS will be continuing to learn their phase 3 sounds.

Year 1 will recap the phonemes they have already learned as well as being introduced to new sounds and words.

Year 2 will revise their phase 1-5 knowledge and look at spelling patterns, especially with suffixes as well as common exception words.
