Class RA!

Welcome to our class page. We will update this page each term to share our learning journeys with you!

Spring 1
Welcome back! We hope that you all had a lovely break. The children have settled in back to school routine and it has been lovely to hear about all the magical things that happened over the winter break. 


CRASH! Something landed in our Quiet Area and we went out to investigate. After lots of lists of evidence gathering and careful consideration, we decided that it must have been an alien spaceship. A book called 'Aliens Love Underpants' appeared in our classroom and after reading it, we returned to school to find that the aliens had visited us and left underpants everywhere! 

OH NO! An alien had been left behind in our school playground. The children all helped to take care of the alien whilst we decided what to do. The children thought that it would be a sensible idea to write some letters to the alien's parents. We sent the letters off and waited for a reply...


Around the World Week

Wow! A big thank you to all parents for their support on around the world dress up day - the children looked amazing!

The children had a fantastic week learning about different countries' customs, traditions and culture. We took a visit to America, India, France and China. The children had lots of fun tasting food, being crafty and dressing up! Take a look at the pictures below.



RA will read on Mondays and Tuesdays but please ensure that your child's book bag is in school every day.

Children are making fantastic progress with their reading and we are very proud of them!


Phoneme Fans
Every Friday, new sounds and tricky words will be added to your child's phoneme fan.

Please practise these with your child at home. 


Ongoing Things to Practise
-letter formation focusing on tall and small letters
-forming numbers correctly
-adding and subtracting 2 numbers
- segmenting the sounds in words and blending them back together
- writing short sentences using a capital letter and a full stop
- recognising and writing numbers to 30

-finding one more and one less than a given number

We will keep you updated on our learning each week via our 'Learning Together' sheet

Thank you for you continued support
