Dear Parents and Carers

This week we have been reading and linking our learning to the traditional tale of ‘The Gingerbread Man’. We have been learning the story using actions and story maps and have written some impressive narratives. We have also made our own gingerbread men.

Next week we will be talking about ‘Easter’, thinking about the Christian story and signs and symbols of Easter and spring. We will also be welcoming some children from Preston Community Pre-School for an Easter Egg hunt and giving the staff there a chance to see the amazing progress their children have made here.

In maths we are continuing to explore addition by counting on and using a range of resources to consolidate our understanding.

Ideas for supporting your child’s learning at home this week.

  • Explore all the pairs that make the number 5. e.g. 1 + 4    2 + 3    3 + 2    4 + 1 – Can they draw pictures of them?


  • Read a traditional story together and talk about the setting and the characters.

Have a great weekend

Many Thanks
