Term 3

This term our topic is Traditional Tales. The stories will be the basis of our literacy lessons and books will include, ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and ‘Three Little Pigs.’ We will be developing our reading skills with retelling the stories with props, answering questions and supporting blending.


This term we will be going to Forest school, weather permitting and this will give the children a lot of life experience opportunities. Please make sure your child has appropriate clothing for these days, as we will still go if it is slightly raining.

Nurture time is throughout the day and this is particularly beneficial for children coming into class in the morning. It will focus on their Boxall targets and individual EHCP targets too. We foster and encourage social interaction and the children sit together socially for breakfast, lunch and snack time. Adults also model social skills.

Things to remember:

  • Diaries will be written in and given out each day, please send them back in the morning.
  • EHCP target diaries will be written in fortnightly and given out at the end of the week.
  • PE is on Thursday and if possible please remember a PE kit. We do have spare if you forget.
  • Please can you label your child’s name in all clothing. Spare clothing is always a good idea, particularly this time of year when the weather turns cold and wet.
  • Please try and encourage your children to leave toys at home, as they do go missing!

If your child has a spare pair of wellington boots to bring in for days, when it is wet or muddy on the playground.
