Week 4

Welcome to the Blog!

Hello and welcome to class RR's weekly blog. Every week I will share what we have been doing with photos and videos of all the fun and amazing learning that has been taking place. I'll also share information about our phonics and things of interest to you too!


Funky Fingers

Every morning from 8.30 the children have a different activity on their tables. These are to help the children develop their finger muscles including the pincer grip that is so important when learning to hold a pencil and write.

Forest School

Here is a little selection of photographs from the last few weeks of Forest School. We have learnt all about the Forest School rules and enjoyed taking part in activities such as creating self portraits and exploring the environment.

Reading Morning

It was wonderful to be able to open our doors and welcome so many parents to the reading morning. It was great to introduce our phonics scheme called Little Wandle and talk about how we are teaching your children to recognise letters and begin to read words.


You can access all the parents resources such as the pronunciation videos on the website.

Reading records


A little guidance on filling in the yellow book

  • Please record every read of the school reading book
  • Do not record other books
  • Only one read per day to be written in
  • Short comments and messages are optional but lovely to see


5 reads receives a sticker and lots of praise in class. When you get to 15 its a certificate from Miss Peck!

Read with me!


This week we are sending home a book from our class 'Read with me box'. This is a story book for you to share with your child and for you to read to them.  These books are chosen by the children on a Friday - please return by the following Friday to receive a different one for the next weekend.
