What an amazing first term.

The children have settled to into school life well and have made lots of new friends.

We have already started learning phonics and are beginning to learn to apply them to our reading and writing.

We have deepened our understanding of the quantities 1-5, and learnt to ensure our counting is careful.

We have worked on the books Whatever Next, Peace at Last and Room on the Broom, creating story maps and sequencing the pictures.

We celebrated International Space week and finished the term with a Potions party.

Here's to Term 2 where we introduce formal English lessons and Forest School.
