Summer 2


Welcome back. We hope you had a good Easter holidays. This term we will be exploring mystical creatures as our starting point. Some very strange beanstalks seem to have appeared in our classrooms over the holidays so we will be exploring where they could have come from and what may be at the top! 


Please remember to use class dojo to message us with any questions and upload photos of any home learning to Tapestry. We are happy to help if you have any difficulty accessing these. 

Spring 2


Welcome back after a whole half term of home learning for many. We are hoping that we can all be together soon. Here is this half term's newsletter which explains our starting points.

We hope you have had a very wonderful Christmas time. 


Please find a couple of activities to get started on tomorrow if you are learning from home. We, as always, look forward to seeing your uploads to Tapestry.


Maths: Recap subitsing:

Can you recognise sets of a number around the house. Can you split them up a different way? for example can you split 5 objects into 3 and 2, 4 and 1. 


Phonics: Have a go at the sounds and tricky words we have learnt so far: Youtube - tricky word song and Youtube - jollyphonics sounds

Explore the phonics section on the school website. Have a go at some of the games via the links provided. 


Starting point: Watch the friendly dinosaur which has visited the classroom over the holidays. We have put it up on Tapestry. Mrs Glenn has added a few questions to get you thinking about what we can do to let people know about our pet dinosaur!

Autumn Term 1


Welcome to Coningsby St. Michaels. We are so excited to have you starting with us. This term is all about settling the children in, looking at where they are and getting to know their amazing personalities. We will be doing lots of learning through play alongside some phonics, number and fine motor sessions. Please check the termly newsletter link for key information and an overview. 


Our church school value this term is:




Our bible story of the term is Zacchaeus and Jesus befriending him.


We will be exploring friendship and what it means in our nurture sessions together. If you have any examples of your child showing our Church School Values please add a message or photo to Tapestry. 


Later in the term we will look at how we are all part of Coningsby St. Michaels and new starters will add a named stone to our school Cairn. 



September 2019 to August 2020
