We come back to school on Tuesday January the 9th.
During the first week back, we will be talking and writing about things the children have done during their break from school, presents they have had, people they have spent time with etc.
We would very much appreciate it if you could send in a photo that we could stick into their Learning Journey (like you did last term when we were learning about 'families'). A photo is always a great way to remind the children of what they've done and it helps inspire them to write, so thank you in advance!

Tricky word pockets
The children now have a 'Tricky word' pocket which they need to keep in their book bags.
Please look at the tricky words with your child when you read with them (or instead of reading occasionally).
They are tricky because you can't sound them out, so the children need to learn them by sight instead.
They can be used to make sentences, such as:-
I like my _______
I saw the _______
