Here are photos of the performance. We hope that you enjoyed the performance! Thank you to all who came!

Over the holidays: We have sent home the tricky words that we have been learning this half term. It would be great if you could practise reading these. They are words that are tricky as they may not be decodable, or we are yet to learn the digraph/adjacent consonants in them.

Next term: We will focus on applying our phonics to our writing as well as start to develop our sentence writing. Our topic for the half term is “Terrific Tales” – looking at traditional tales and stories.

We hope that you all have a very safe and Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in 2022!
