December 2018
 

We have been continuing our journey with learning about different Seasons and Celebrations by finding out about Advent- We have been really enjoying this topic as it is about preparing for Christmas. We have learnt about the Advent Wreath, the journey Mary and Joseph had to make and the different ways to prepare for Christmas. The children have found our Advent assemblies at the end of the day a special time to reflect.

The children loved our Books@Bedtime event, we came back to school in our pyjamas and enjoyed some Christmas stories and a hot chocolate before bed!

We have also been getting a little bit Christmassy….

In Maths we have been exploring measure looking at weight and height to sort some Presents found in the classroom. To support at home: try finding some different objects that you can weigh or measure together and sort them from smallest to biggest/ lightest to heaviest.

We have been very busy in Literacy writing our letters to Father Christmas. We have been learning how to sound out words, remember finger spaces and check our work afterwards. To support at home: try writing a Christmas list/ Christmas cards or a letter to the elves.

We have been dressing up to tell the story of the Nativity, getting ready for Christmas by making all the food, wrapping presents for our friends and putting them under the tree and making Santas workshop!

The children were fantastic in the Christmas Play this week. They sang songs beautifully and behaved wonderfully throughout! What great angels you were!
