Enjoying books and reading stories from a very early age is crucial in the development of children. It helps with their ability to understand words, use their imagination, and develop their speech, as well as being something they really enjoy. We will be using online reading books this year from More information can be found in your child’s reading diary. A new online book will be set each week.


Once a week we will spend the morning doing ‘finger gym’ activities. Finger gym activities boost communication and language and build a foundation for handwriting later on. It improves hand eye coordination, muscle development and enriches vocabulary.

The children will also be taught phonics for 20 minutes per day.



Maths is an important part of learning for all children in the early years and receiving a good foundation in maths is essential. We will have a big push on their understanding of number by problem solving, explaining their understanding and using shapes and measure.

Thank you,

Miss McMenamy & Mrs Ferguson
