Reception has been buzzing with excitement this week as we have started our Nativity rehearsals in the hall. Please continue to practise your child’s speaking parts over the weekend, the children have been very patient this week as we have been learning where we will be standing and sitting. We hope next week our rehearsals will flow quickly and if the children can say their lines confidently that will really help.

This week we have learned the sh sound in RWI and the children have been enjoying revisiting all of the sounds we have learned so far. We will continue to revisit sounds and work on blending the sounds together next week. You could have a go at home using your RWI mat and see if you can blend words such as c-a-t (fred talk) = cat.

In Maths we have been focusing on the number 8 this week. We have been forming the number 8 in different ways using whiteboards, string, paint and pipe cleaners. We have also enjoyed trying to use tweezers to put the correct amount of counters in the cups.

We have enjoyed making paper plate Advent Wreaths this week ready for Advent beginning this weekend, we hope you enjoy this special time with your family.
