September 2021 

We have had a lovely first week back getting to know each other. The children have responded so well to being in Heron Class and having to learn lots of new rules.

This week we have been practising our Set 1 phonic sounds and reminding the children how to blend to support their reading. They have also practised writing their letters correctly.

In Maths we have been counting to 10, forward and back, writing numerals  to 10 correctly, and using a number track/line to show we understand which numbers are bigger and which are smaller.

We have also had our first assembly in the hall! It was lovely to come together as a school and listen to Mrs Russell as she shared how we can earn treats as a class!

It has been a very busy week!
