St. Josephs’s Class (Year R)


Happy New Year from the Year R team.

We hope you had an enjoyable festive season and spent some quality time with family and friends.

This term, learning time will increase and the phonics/handwriting and maths tasks will continue to be practical and engaging whilst taking on a more structured approach.

We are going to focus on independent writing with children using their sounds to help them build a sentence. We will practise the rules of sentence structure.

We will also be learning our sight words (red words) those which we can not use our phonics for. 

We are going to plant bulbs in our garden and nurture them in the hope they will flourish in the spring.

Our theme is all around rhythm and rhyme - if your child has a book they would like to share please send it in (named is helpful).

Thank you in advance for your continued support
