This half term we have enjoyed looking at different celebrations which have included Bonfire night, Halloween, Remembrance, Christenings, Birthdays, Weddings, Divali and Christmas. We also had a really enjoyable trip to the Pantomime "Oh yes we did!!!!". The children have also been continuing their phonics learning and have started to read and write words and simple sentences using the phonics we have learnt. Have a great Christmas break and we will look forward to seeing you all back in the New Year.
