Spring Term

Welcome back to the Spring Term

During the Spring term our topic will be 'Traditional Tales ' we will be thinking about how a traditonal tale is written including settings, events, characters and endings. We are hoping for a visit from our very own GIANT!!

Look out for the GIANT he may have left clues as to where he is!!

We will be visiting Tatton Park where we will be telling our very own Traditional Tales, looking for pumpkins and dancing like Cinderella.

In literacy we will be focusing on books about Traditional Tales starting with 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. To support us with our writing we will be acting out the story, looking at the characters and learning how a story is put together.

We will be writing sentences, looking at how to start and finish a sentence aswell as learning how to form our letters correctly. We will start to write our own stories, make posters and learn how to write a list.

We will continue to learn our sounds focusing on blending and segmenting to make words aswell as using our tricky words. We will making up pseudo words (nonsense words) to help with our reading. Check the classroom every morning for our sound of the day and hidden words to read.

In maths we will be using Number blocks.(CBBC). This half term we will be focusing on numbers up to 10 using the five principles of counting. (see maths in the early years). We will be using the GIANT to help us with looking at height, length and capacity.

The children will be doing lots of learning in the outdoor area using our new literacy and maths area, mud kitchen,  role play, sand, water and stage! We are also hoping to do lots of planting in our nature area. Look out for lots of hidden sounds and numbers in our new and exciting Gingerbread House (Miss Moore has been very busy collecting lots of lovely activities)

My door is always open if you have any questions, worries or concerns. Please feel free to catch myself, Mrs Clarke or Miss Moore at the beginning or end of the day.

Is every Monday afternnon 

Please can you make sure the children have their P.E Bags in school. They can bring them in on a Monday morning for the week ahead and be left in their pegs. Please make sure all clothing and belongings are clearly named. Thank you




We aim to read and change your child’s reading book twice a week. It is important that your child has their book bags and reading books and diaries in school every day so that this is possible. We ask that you spend 10 minutes each day listening to your child read their book or key words. It is important to talk about the story to make sure you child is understanding what they have read. When you have heard your child read please could you complete the home school reading diary. This will help us to monitor reading development.



Word Aware 
Here at Victoria Road Primary School we use the Word Aware approach.This entails learning a new word everyday, we read the word, found out its meaning, act out the word, sing the word we even have a word RAP!! Your child will bring home a slip stuck into their reading diary with the chosen topic of discussion for that evening.  On the day your child gets their Word Aware Homework they will not need to read but will be expected to spend time discussing their word with as many adults as possible at home. Children will still need to read on the other nights of the week. However to get the best benefits it would be ideal to talk about the word as much as possible over the week as this will help them back in class where there will be quality time spent discussing or writing about the chosen word. 

We feel that Word Aware Homework will contribute to the enrichment of writing and hope that you will support your child at home.
