This week we have been learning about the Christmas story and practising songs to share with our parents. The Reception children have been learning Away in a Manger with Makaton and the Nursery children have been singing Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star. These songs have now been recorded and will be shared with you towards the end of term.
In maths, we have been finding different ways to make the numbers 4 and 5. We have also found the numbers that are one more/one less up to 5.
Next week we will be reading the story, Dear Santa by Rod Campbell. The children will practise writing lists of the presents that appear in the story and will be making Christmas cards for elderly residents in the village.
On Wednesday morning, there will be a virtual Christingle assembly with the local vicar and we will be making our own Christingles to take home.
We will also be learning about Hanukkah and how and why it is celebrated.
In maths, we will be learning more about 2D shapes and using them to match pairs and sort by their different properties.
The Reception children will be revising the phase 2 sounds we have learned and practising the tricky words: to, no, go, the, I, into. Revision will continue for the rest of this half term so we are ready to start introducing phase 3 sounds after Christmas.
Supporting Your Child At Home...
We hope you all have a lovely weekend.
