Tuesday 5th Jan

In Grasshopper class, we complete this date and weather chart every morning to help the children learn the days of the week and months of the year. I'm sure your child will love to show you how we do this each morning! 



Look, say, cover and write your spellings daily. 





The spelling groups will be the same as your child had last term. If you are unsure please don't hesitate to email me-
