Hello Everyone,

 

Thank you to everyone who has brought in their Nativity Play costume and a jam jar on Thursday for our Christmas Jumper Day. Children are really enjoying practising their play daily and are now really looking forward to recording the finished performance for you all to view.

 

This week the children have been surprised by a visit from Wilfred the Elf who has been causing quite a stir. We have also been very busy creating Christmas cards and calendars, as well as making a giant paper chain to decorate the classroom.

 

In English, children have been focussing on their comprehension skills and have completed comprehension exercises. They have retold the story of The Gingerbread Man, written a letter to Father Christmas and explored the differences between fiction and non-fiction texts.

 

In Maths, children have been working hard to determine the difference between coin amounts and how much change is needed from amounts up to £1. Please encourage your child to handle money at home, especially when completing their Goggle Classroom homework this week.

 

During science this week children continued to look at everyday materials, and were introduced to John McAdam who was the inventor of tarmac. Whilst in topic we wrote our own post card telling Wilfred the Elf all about what we had done on our visit to a capital city in the British Isles.

 

Please do not hesitate to email us about anything big or small or catch us in the playground at the start or end of the day.
