Christmas Play will be on the 5th December at 9.30am.

The children have been rehearsing brilliantly and can’t wait to show you.


This week…..

We’ll be helping Santa solve subtraction problems as he drops presents down the chimney!

We are learning the Christmas story and drawing pictures and labelling a Nativity scene.

We are making Christmas cards and thinking about ways we celebrate important dates with our friends and families.

PE Days

Apple and Cherry class will have PE on a Wednesday

Children will need a white PE top and  shorts in a PE bag. Please name all items as you can imagine what it might be like with thirty children getting changed at the same time!

It is useful to practice getting in and out of clothes at home. Socks can be especially tricky!

Take a look at our topic webs to see what we’ll be learning about each term.

Learning at Home

Each Friday your child will bring home new letters and sounds we have been learning. Please practise these at home.

Reception phonics-meeting-2018-2

Every week your child will read with us 1:1. We will help them change their reading book which is levelled appropriately for them. When they read with you at home, please fill in their reading journal.

To help your child with maths at home:

Practice counting up to 5 (then 10) objects. e.g. Laying the table for 4 people, counting the pairs of socks that come out the wash etc.

How many ways can they make 5? What happens when you take objects away or add some on?

Can you spot numbers around you?

Play games with dice/dominoes – encourage your child to spot number patterns.
