The children should know I, the, and, can, is, in, it, he, she, had, we, me, be, was, my, you, they, all, are, her, now, down, back, come, some, them, then, they. The children should now also be able to spell the, to, I, no, go, he, be, we, and, she, me, down, said, like.

In Maths this week we have been  counting in 2’s and 10’s and practising doubling and halving.

Other curriculum news:

We have continued to work on our project, ‘Up, Up and Away’. This is all focused around preparing the children for the transition to Year 1. The project outcome will be from 3.15pm – 3.45pm on Thursday 13th July. This is an outcome that the parents are invited to attend. We will dismiss the children to you at the end of the day as per normal and then once all children have been collected we will invite you back in and the children can take you on a tour down to Year 1 and show you their new classrooms.

General Information:

This week will be the final week we send homework home. Our final piece is looking forward to moving on to Year One next year.

Please note that school finishes at 1.15pm on Friday 21st July.

Thank you for your ongoing support
