Welcome to the Wrens

This term our topic is called 'Once Upon a Rhyme'.

In Foundation, PE is on a Thursday; so please can you ensure that children arrive at school dressed in PE kit (shorts/joggers, trainers and a polo/t-shirt) every Thursday.

During this topic, the children will be learning all about different fairytales and nursery rhymes and enjoying a range of creative activities based upon our favourite tales. The Wrens will be learning all about different animals and the habitats that they live in.  In RE, we will be looking at how people celebrate the new year in different cultures and discussing new beginnings. In our expressive art and design, we will be designing our own gingerbread people and decorating them following our designs. My Very First Story Time: The Gingerbread Man: Fairy Tale  with picture glossary and an activity : Pat-a-Cake, Randall, Ronne, Batori,  Susan: Foreign Language Books

The children will read stories for this topic that include; The Gingerbread Man, Each Peach Pear Plum and a huge variety of other rhymes and fairytales.

We will be continuing our phonics learning with the Little Wandle: Letters and Sounds Revised phonics programme. We have started learning our phase 3 phonemes (sounds) and will continue getting decodable reading books to take home. For guidance on pronunciation of the phonemes (sounds) please use this link:

In Maths, we are exploring capacity and mass and learning to discuss what we have found using vocabulary like: empty, full, heavy and light.

We look forward to sharing some more photographs with you soon on our Wrens Class dojo page and welcome any questions that you have. We are always available at the gate after school and in the mornings and can be messaged via Class dojo messenger if there is anything you need help with.         

If you have any concerns or worries, please do not hesitate to contact myself or Miss Knight.

Best wishes,

Mrs Lamerton and Miss Knight
