St. Josephs’s Class (Year R)

 Welcome to Term 4!

This term our topic is ‘Our Homes and Where We Live’.

Our books are ‘A New House for Mouse’ by Petr Horacek and ‘The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry and The Big Hungry Bear’ by Dom and Audrey Wood.

We will be looking at exploring our local area and the homes we live in. This will include taking a trip to our local library and learning all about where we live – including the numbers on our front doors!

Last term, I sent home some red words for the children to practise.  Children who have successfully learnt their first set, will be receiving a second set to continue their learning.

Red words are words that need recalled by sight as they cannot be read using their Phonics.  We recommend you chop them up and pop them in a special tin or box! They could also be stuck to the fridge, doors as passwords or any other exciting invention!

A few notes and reminders:

  • Mathletics will continue to be set every Monday to be completed for homework. You can access this via and using the login, which is stapled to your child’s yellow contact book.
  •  Forest School dates for Spring 2 are as follows:

 Wednesday 27th February 2019

Tuesday 5th March 2019

Tuesday 12th March 2019

Tuesday 19th March 2019

Monday 25th March 2019

Tuesday 2nd April 2019

  •  P.E. will continue to be on Friday’s.
  •  Named items: please make sure all items are clearly labelled – water bottles, clothes, bags and any hats, scarves and gloves. We really appreciate this as it can be difficult to get items back to their owners safely when they don’t have names on!

 Thank you for all your continued support,

 Miss Howell
