Hello and welcome to our class.

In our class we have Mrs Mackey, Miss McGlynn,

8 girls, 18 boys and 10 goldfish.


At the moment we are enjoying our journey of discovery to China. We are celebrating Chinese New Year and learning the Chinese legend of The Great Race.

We are enjoying our daily Read Write Inc phonics sessions, and are progressing well through our set 1 sounds: masdt inpgo cku fel bhrjy vwzx sh th ch qu ng nk and some of us are now learning set 2 sounds including: ay ee oo 

Our Literacy lessons follow Talk 4 Writing principals.

We are currently enjoying our focus text Dear Zoo.

The postman delivered a surprise parcel to our class. It was a present from Chester Zoo… a snake for us to look after!

We have enjoyed talking about the pets we have at home, or those that we really really would like to have. The children all enjoyed trying different actions for each animal, and we have voted on our favourites to be included in our performance of the story.

In our class we are living our mission by being kind to all our new friends, sharing our toys and taking turns. Our smiles have welcomed new children to our class as well as visitors. We have been learning to say our school prayers at lunchtime and home times, and showing that we are respectful when talking to God and hearing his word during Collective Worship and our Come and See lessons. We are all trying our best to be shining lights.

“Believe in the light so that you will be children of the light.”

John 12:36

We have reading books that go home weekly, and Learning Packs, full of fun activities for the family, which are fortnightly. They are both due back in school on Thursdays.
