We have had an exciting start to the new year.  Here are some of the things we have been doing this week.
We are learning about Harvest.
 
We have read the story about 'The Little Red Hen'.
 
Hear a version of the story with the link below.
Harvest
 
We have learnt about harvest.  We found out that the Little Red Hen would have had an easier job if she had a combine harvester to cut the wheat she grew.
 
We have also been looking at vegetables.
Foundation 1 Planning Overviews
  
Snack: Please send 50p in on Monday for the week.
 
Bookbags: Children will need bookbags in to enable them to select a book to take home to share with you.  It is also useful to put any work they have completed and letters.
 
PE Pumps:  This year we are asking for black pumps to be brought into school so that the children can change into them when they come into class and remain in them until hometime. 
Stories and Rhymes
 
Here are a selection of stories and rhymes we have shared in class.  Please revisit them with your child or visit your local library to find other stories by the same author.
