Hello everybody,

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.

We had a lovely week in school last week.   The Christmas Concert was fantastic.  Thank you to everybody who helped to make it such a success especially to the parents who helped to make the costumes.  The costumes looked fantastic!  I hope that you enjoyed watching as much as we enjoyed taking part.

For the next 2 weeks we will be focusing on Christmas craft activities.  We will still have some numeracy and literacy sessions along with daily phonics however the focus will be on preparing for Christmas.

Reading books and library books have now been collected back from most children.  These will be given out again in January.  During the next week the books will all be checked and the book lists will be updated.  Therefore children do not need to bring their book bags to school until January.  We will still check their bear words once per week so keep practicing those at home.

Kind regards,

Miss Johnson.

Hello everybody and happy Friday!

This week we were very excited because Sinterklaas and the Pieten came to visit us on Wednesday night!  They left a mess in our classroom!  They had been playing with our toys!  They also left oranges and pepernoten (small spicy biscuits) inside our boots!

We started a new poetry book in Literacy.  This wee we looked at a poem called Dressing Too Quickly.  We learnt the poem by heart and wrote sentences about it.  We have been learning about leaving a space between each word when we write.

In numeracy we focused on ‘1 more’.  We used resources to help us to find out 1 more than a given number and also tried to a the answer by remembering which number comes next when we count.  The number lines in the classroom also helped us.

We have been very busy rehearsing for our Christmas Concert.  The concert will take place on Friday 9th December at 10am.  Please come along to watch us.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend,

Miss Johnson.
