One Childhood, One Chance

Weekly News! w/b: 2.1.23

Happy New Year all! We hope you all had a restful and magical Christmas. Thank you for all for our cards and presents, we were extremely grateful!

Read, Write Inc

This week we were introduced to our new groups! We have been working hard on our spellings and focussing on those tricky red words! 

In each reading folder, there is a sound card and list of red words. Any practise with these at home would be extremely helpful and support your child’s reading and writing at home.

Every morning can all children place their reading folders inside their house trays in the conservatory please :) This helps us keep track of their reading and how many books they have read. Thank you. 

Please can Miss Kirtley's RWI group send her a picture of a pet, if they have one, by Monday. Her email address is:


This week in maths we have been learning all about time! We started the week by sequencing instructions in time order. We used these instructions to help us make a delicious jam sandwich. Yummy! We then moved on to learning all about the days of the week and months of the year. We were absolutely wonderful at telling o'clock times at the end of the week and were able to answer some super tricky time questions! 


This week we have been learning all about special books. We spoke about our own favourite books and why they are meaningful to us. We then moved our learning on to look at religious special books and their importance for each religion.

Next week…

We will start our new topic! Please remember that on Monday the 9th January we will be taking part in a special aerobics fitness class, so please come to school dressed in your exercise gear - 80s headbands and lycra is encouraged!  

In Maths, we will be looking at place value. We will be counting on from 10 and learning to regroup. 

 Love to Learn:

This week we would love for you to create your own clock! This could be created in any way you wish :)
