Welcome to


with Miss Clarke

Welcome back!

This term we will be exploring cross-curricular themes based on our topic entitled, Toys and Hello, I’m new here.

We will be having a topic launch day where your child will be able to dress up as their favourite toy and enjoy a range of cross curricular activities. This will be happening on Friday 25th September.


Our core texts this term will be:












Our writing and other activities will be based on these books as well as practicing letter formation and phonics.

Unfortunately at the present time we will not be sending home books to read.  It is still really important to read with your child every day for a least 10 minutes. Please make use of the books you have at home that are appropriate for your child’s reading level and you can access e books using the link and passwords below.

Continue to practice your phonics. Phonicsplay continues to offer free login details and resources.





In numeracy this term we will be focusing on counting and recognising numbers. We will be looking at number bonds to 5 and then to 10 and developing our knowledge of place value. We  will also be relating addition and subtraction to counting forwards and backwards.







In science this term we will look at ‘ourselves’. We will name and label the basic body parts, think about how we have changed as we have grown and explore the five senses. We will also look at how we can be healthy.


We will be looking at weddings and baptism in the church. 



This term our theme for PSHE is ‘Being me in my world’ and then ‘Celebrating difference’.









Ahlberg P.E days are on a Monday and Thursday. Please ensure your child wears their P.E to school as we will not be changing in class.
