It's been wonderful to see your work coming in.
Mrs Scott and Mrs Ward love to see what you've been up to at home.
Help at Home
The best way to help your child succeed at school is to enjoy sharing a book with them. This can be a favourite bedtime story, a magazine from the shop or a non-fiction book based on their interests- any type of reading is great!
You might have noticed your child singing songs or doing some funny actions when telling you all about their reading and writing! That's because we use some Jolly Phonics songs, a fun way of learning letters.
Here are a few links to help you understand what it's all about.
All About Jolly Phonics

Other Fun Websites
Songs We Like!
We are a very musical class and love learning new songs.
Counting By 2s (we learnt a clever way to count large amounts!)
Counting by 10s (and even larger ones!)
3D Shapes (that I know) (such a catchy song to help us learn some 3D shapes)
Baby Shark (for when we want a bit of silly fun!)
You Are The Best (because St John's is the BEST! I wonder if Mums, Dads, Grandparents and other family members can learn the dance?)
Joe Wicks The Body Coach, does an 8-minute workout aimed at children – it might burn some energy off!
Cosmic Kids Lots of different stretching, yoga and mindfulness adventures here.
Please remember to always supervise children when they are using the Internet. Although we have checked these links when adding them to our Class 1 page, things can change quickly. Please let Class 1 staff know if you spot anything inappropriate whilst playing these games.
The NSPCC has some useful advice about online safety here
