Happy New Year!

A huge welcome back to all the children this week.   We have worked on learning the positions of the letters in the alphabet and started our new  history of toys  topic this week.  Why is the Wii more fun than Grandma and Grandpa’s old toys?

During gymnastics we have been learning all about how we move using  our points and patches.

Have a great weekend!

Hi everyone,

Homework this week will be a Science and Phonics based one.  Click the link below and play this interactive game, can you name the different body parts?


This week  we would  also like you to play some games on The Phonics play website .

The first game is called pick a picture and is a good game to practice blending sounds and work on memory skills.

The  second game is called sentence substitution whereby you read a sentence and then click and drag new words to make a new sentence.

Mrs Efstathiou’s and Mrs Jones’ phonics groups are working with phase 3 and Miss Ali’s group are working with phase 3 and phase 5a.

A Friday Treat!

This weeks tremendous efforts were rewarded with a trip to  see  Peter and the Wolf at the Edge Theatre.    The Goblin Theatre Company   amazed us with their interactive and musical show.   It   certainly opened our eyes to the possibility of a kind vegan wolf right here in Chorlton!

Thank you to all your kind offers for help and those that came on the trip today.   We hope you enjoyed it too!
