Dare we say it? December is fast approaching and Christmas is around the corner! We have had an exciting week this week, the children now know who they are for our Nativity performance and they have brought their lines home (in their reading book wallets) to practice. Please practice them this weekend so we can have a good start to our rehearsals next week.

This week in RWI we have learned:
ch - The horse sneezes when the caterpillar’s hairs get up his nose!
qu - Round her head, up past her earrings and down her hair
x - Down the arm and leg and repeat the other side
ng - A thing on a string

In maths we have been focusing on the number 7. We have enjoyed singing the potato song and ordering numbers 1-7. We can even count backwards from 7! This week we have also been looking at part-part-whole and the different ways to make 7, this is tricky but the children have really started to create a good understanding using counters, lego and different objects.

We were very lucky to have Amanda visit us from the library. Amanda shared a story with us and the children loved joining in with the animal noises. Amanda would love to see the children at the library if you have chance to visit.

Please could you make sure you have put names in jumpers, hats and gloves. It is great that the children have lots of things to wrap up with in this cold weather but sometimes belongings fall off pegs and it is much easier to return with a name in!

Thank-you and have a lovely weekend,

Miss Dixon and Mrs Mahoney
