Welcome back to school.  We hope that you have all had a fantastic time with your families over the Christmas break and we are excited to get going with our next topic ‘Once Upon a Time’ with you.  We are looking forward to having lots of fun and taking part in lots of learning experiences with you.

Topic overview: Once Upon a Time ...


This term we will be exploring Traditional Tales.  We will be looking at traditional tales and 'Once Upon a Time' stories.  We will explore the content of the stories and look at the characters who feature in those stories.  We will get creative by learning new musical skills and creating fabulous artwork.


We will be focusing on embedding the Curriculum for Wales 4  purposes in our topic by being ambitious, capable learners, enterprising, creative contributors, ethical, informed citizens and healthy, confident individuals.

Important information

PE will be on Thursday afternoons.  Please can the children come to school wearing PE kit – they won’t need to wear school uniform on Thursdays.


Forest School will be on Friday mornings.  Please can the children come to school wearing school uniform, and bring their forest school clothes in a bag – labelled with their names.  When the weather is wet, please include a change of socks incase their socks get soggy inside their wellies!




We will be following the Read Write Inc scheme to support phonics and reading skills. The children will have daily RWI sessions to learn the initial letter sounds and green words. Fred is our friendly frog who will help us to sound out letters and blend the sounds to read the words. He will also help us to spell words using our 'Fed Fingers'. More information about Read Write Inc can be found in our guide below. To support this, sound books will be sent home weekly with new sounds as words as your child is ready. please can these books be returned to school on a Monday and Friday.

Home reading books will be sent home weekly as your child is ready and a reading record will be supplied by the school. 



We will be using our Read, Write Inc programme to support Literacy, along with our Oxford Reading Tree home school reading books. We will also be running a library where the children will choose a book to take home.

The children will start to take home Oxford reading scheme books when they are ready to do so. They will also be given high frequency words to take home. These are vital to helping the children understand the books so we ask that you spend some time helping the children learn them. These will be given in sets of 4 as different characters. As they learn each characters words, they will be given a certificate to take home.

Below you can find each characters words.

Please can you spend 10 minutes daily supporting your child read. This could be using flashcards for sounds, high frequency words or reading books.

We would also be very grateful if you could make comments on their home learning account on seesaw.

Please see below for some documents about how to support your child's reading at home.
