What will we be getting up to?


Term one

What will we be up to in Venus  class?
The holidays are over, and the start of term is here... I hope you're as excited as we are to get stuck into this brand new year! We have already had so much fun together, now let's try and double it this year, with fun and games and more to learn, see you on the 5th with a great big cheeeeer!


We are so excited to be started a brand new year at WPA and have so many fun things planned. Our new topic is 'toys' and it is literally all about toys! We will be looking into the history of toys in Literacy, trying our hand at some data handling in Maths to see which toys are the most popular and also having a go at making our own toys in D and T!

Our focus book for the first half of the term is the Jolly Postman and through this book we will be learning all about letter writing and applying all our new knowledge of phase 5 sounds. We have plenty to keep us busy in maths, where we will be dealing with numbers up to 100! Keep your eyes peeled for the 100 challenge on Facebook!


EEEK! We are so excited to get back into the swing of things - see you in the new term! P.S please don't forget our open door policy - any queries, bug bearers or comments that need airing or chatting about please do pop in see one of the team!
