Starting school

Welcome to our new pupils in Robins and Wrens. You have all shown lots of courage over your first week and explored lots of new things.


You have all worked hard at following the Golden Rules and made lots of new friends.

We Listen

We look after property

We are honest

We are gentle

We are kind and helpful

Staying for lunch

“Yummy school dinners.”   

Clean plates all round!   

“Can I have some more please?”


The menu is displayed outside the classroom each morning and can be found online. 

Reading - getting to know the characters in our core reading books.

Learning phonemes

s a t p i n m

We found things that begin with these sounds and played lots of fun games. Ask your child how to do the actions for each of these phonemes. 




  • Counting objects, touching each object and giving it a number name.
  • Searching for groups of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 objects.
  • Using Number Blocks and Numicon to help us visualise number.
  • Recognising groups of objects up to 5 without having to count them – subitising.

Going for GOALS!

We have set ourselves goals and are working hard to achieve them.

We are using the 'Silver Learning Code' to help us REACH our goals!

We're Going On a Bear Hunt

by Michael Rosen

We created a story map of the Bear Hunt

and used it to verbalise the story in our environment.

Together we innovated the Bear Hunt story creating our own

'We're Going On a Unicorn Hunt.'
