Phonics this week – we have learned l, ll and v. There are new tricky words and blending words in their reading folders again this week. Please keep up your brilliant practising, even though things are getting festive, because our new “reading muscles” will get rusty really quickly! We have also started talking about how to make a sentence this week – now we know that sentences need a finger space between each word, and a full stop at the end. We will continue to learn more and more about how to read and write sentences as the year progresses.
We hope you are enjoying your children bringing home reading books to share with you – please remember to read them several times and sign your child’s reading diary. Thanks.
In Maths this week we were focusing on comparing numbers and quantities in order to be able to say which is more and which is less. We played lots of games, quite often using dice, so the children are getting increasingly confident to recognise dice dot formations. Please dig out your snakes and ladder type games and help them to get even better at “reading” dice numbers.
We all made some delicious Gingerbread Men this week to celebrate all of our storytelling learning around “The Gingerbread Man.” We hope you heard how tasty they were.
Thank you to all the Mummies and Daddies and Grannies who came to Decorations’ afternoon – we were very productive and glittery! We will use the beautiful things to decorate the classroom and then they will come home at the end of term.
Tapestry – those of you still not accessing your accounts – please come and see your child’s teacher.
You should now know what role your child is playing in our Nativity. If you have been asked to provide a costume, please bring it to school by Wednesday.
Some reminders –
There is a Book Fayre in the hall next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. All books are half price!
The PTFA are ready to receive your donations for the Tombola which will be part of the excitement of “Family Film Night” next Friday at 5pm. Tickets are still available from the office.
If you want your child to help to decorate the school Christmas tree in the hall, please send a NAMED decoration to school on Tuesday 4th December. We will endeavour to ensure that you get your decoration back at the end of term, but please ensure it is clearly named.
Jumper amnesty!! Several children have got jumpers and cardigans missing. Please could you check the jumpers and cardigans (and any other uniform) that you have in your house to see if any have “stowed away” in the wrong school bag.
Have a great weekend.
