Say hello to our class bear, Billy! He will be going home with children from the Pumas on a Monday and a Friday to have some adventures with you at home!
Billy will be on the lookout for children who catch his eye by trying extra hard or doing something extra special.
We hope you have lots of fun with Billy at home and we can't wait to hear all about it!

A website full of phonics games and resources for children. Start on Phase 3 and move through the phases when your child is ready.
A number facts game where children have to work out the Maths sum to free the funky mummy! A great game to practise basic adding skills.
A game where children have to match the pipes using number bonds to 10 in order to free the whale! It can also be changed to bonds for 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. A great game to practise these number bonds which support other mathematical learning.

Obb and Bob are brothers. They both love to eat but they like to eat different things. Can you feed Bob the real words and Obb the fake ones?
