Welcome to Term 2

What a fantastic start to the academic year we have had.  Term 1 has whizzed past and there have been so many new experiences we have enjoyed.  We have marvelled at how well everyone has settled and started their reading and writing journey with phonics.

This term we will be continuing with learning new graphemes and developing our understanding about numbers, addition and subtraction.

We will be continuing to send home the 50 Best Books and the children's reading books.  Please record every time you read with your child in their reading record.  This allows us to praise the children about what they have been doing at home and it can start positive conversations about books they have enjoyed.

As well as carrying on with developing our vocabulary this term, we will be focusing on poetry and rhymes.


Our Big Questions this term will be:

  • Why should we remember?    
  • What do we use water for?    
  • What does Christmas mean to you?


Our Class Books

  • Zim Zam Zoom
  • Feelings
  • Let Celebrate 5 Days of Diwali
  • The Water Princess
  • Bringing the Rain to the Kapiti Plains
  • Dream Snow
  • The Nativity Story
  • Dear Santa

How you can help at home

Being positive and confident about going to school is so important, it helps your child's transition and helps them feel confident. 

Talking about what you have been doing whilst they have been at school and asking them about what they have been doing. 

Sharing books, they don't have to be from school, and talking about what you and they enjoy about them.  Tell them about the books you loved as a child or the book you are reading at the moment - if it's appropriate.



 Please follow the one way system around the and remember cars are not allowed up on the site unless it is for Breakfast Club or After School Club and only at the times specified.

PE is on Mondays and Fridays so the children will need to wear their PE kits to school.

Please record all the books you share with your child in the reading record.
