Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

This term we will be continuing our hard work across all disciplines and learning some exciting new topics. These are detailed below:


This term we will be focussing on counting backwards and forwards from twenty, number bonds to ten, subtraction and the calendar (days, months and seasons). Please continue to support your child with their learning at home.

Language – Homework Focus

Reading will be held on a Tuesday and Friday in class, with new reading homework given out once a week on a Friday. Please continue to hear your child read and sign their reading records.

Phonics homework will now be given on a Thursday, 2/3 sounds to practice a week. Regular practise of all double letter sounds should continue.

Sight word lists will be given out on Mondays. The children are learning to recognise and spell these.


This term we are learning about Scotland. We will be looking at Burns Night, Scottish food, Farming and animals in Scotland, famous landmarks, weather and Scottish stories. Towards the end of the term we will be investigating Spring and Nature.


We will be regularly ‘Tweeting’ our learning in class. Please check our page for news.

School Uniform

Please ensure your child bring waterproof clothing and shoes/boots to school so they can enjoy playing outside in all weather.

Please ensure your child’s school uniform has their name clearly marked to avoid too many lost jumpers!
