Happy New Year, happy 2019! Here's to another wonderful term of awesome learning.
The last week of last term was spent enjoying our theme of 'The Polar Express. Various activities were carried out linked to this magical book. We took an imaginary 'train ride' to the North Pole, we enjoyed creating our own reading dens and perhaps the highlight was our pyjama day!

We will be exploring traditional tales, particularly Jack and the Beanstalk and The Enormous turnip. We will be learning about present and past tense as well as moving onto Phase 4 in our phonics.
