Dear All

The weeks seem to be flying by and we only have 3 weeks left before the Christmas break!

We have so much to get done, so it will be a busy few weeks. We will get started on rehearsing the Nativity, so you may hear your child singing a few new songs. We have lots of costumes at school so we won’t be asking you to buy anything. We will be sending out timings and ticket details next week, sorry for the delay but we really want to be able to perform live to parents so we need to get the final details sorted out.

In English this week we wrote descriptions of settings. We thought about adjectives that could be used to add detail to our sentences. 

In Maths we looked at place value using tens and ones, writing numbers as words and representing the numbers with cubes, ten frames and numicom.

In Science, the children started to make a non-fiction book about animals, they used a knowledge organiser to find information and thought about how the book would be presented.

In Geography we learnt about Wales. The children watched a video of the special places in Wales, such as Mount Snowdon and the coast and wrote that Cardiff is the capital city.  In RE we continued to explore the nativity story. The children are becoming more familiar with the different vocabulary and are beginning to understand the origins of Christmas. 

Please remember to send named hats and gloves to school now the weather is getting colder and please help your child to practise zipping up their own coat. We will always help if someone is struggling but we do encourage them to have a go first. 

Have good weekend

Mrs Buckley and Mrs Goodson
