Dear Parents and Carers,
This half term we are answering the Challenge question: who is your favourite fairy tale character?
This week we will be:
* Reading the book 'The Gingerbread Man 2 - what happened later?'
* Writing stories, lists and speech bubbles
* In math's we will be learning how to take away using pictures
* Investigating with Gingerbread men
* Design and making something to get the Gingerbread man across the river
* Reading our books with an adult and summarising what happens in the beginning, middle and end of the story.
So far, we have learnt the sounds of the alphabet. We have started learning about digraphs and have learnt sh, ch, ng, qu, th, ai, ee, igh, oa, both oo sounds, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, er and ure.
This week, we will be recapping the phase 3 sounds.

Mathletics and Attendance challenge!!
Matheletics: If you use mathletics at home each week and earn 1000 points playing the games, your child's name will go into a raffle draw to win prizes! Class teachers will check weekly to see which children have earned 1000 points or more. Prizes will be given out at the end of term.
Attendance: Each week the attendance percentage will be calculated for each class. The class with the highest attendance percentage (97% or above) will win a non-uniform day! So make sure your children are in school every day so they are in with a chance of winning! The class with the best attendance percentage for the term will win a trip to the cinema!
We Need You!
If you have any spare time throughout the week and would like to volunteer to support children with their reading in class please speak to us!
We are also collecting boxes, clean bottles and recycling materials for our junk modelling area and activities. If you have any you could bring into school that would be great!
This week we will be visiting the school library. The children will be bringing home a library book which will then need to be returned weekly for the children to change. We will be visiting the library on Thursday.
Have a great week and please don't hesitate to ask us any questions,
Miss Spence and Miss Caves
