Wow Reception! I am sure all of the family and friends who were lucky enough to come to our Nativity Performance will join me in saying a big WELLDONE to you all! Your hard work has paid off, what a wonderful way to end our week. Thank-you for all of your hard work at home, learning and practicing the children’s lines.

This week we have enjoyed immersing ourselves in the Christmas story. We have been retelling the story together, which we will continue next week. They have been making their own stable too, which shows the Christmas story in pictures.

In RWI we have been continuing to segment and blend CVC words using our robot arms, please continue to practice this at home. Next week, some children will bring home books with words in for them to share with you. Please continue to listen to your child reading and sharing the book atleast 3 times per week.

In Maths we have been looking at the number 10 this week. We have enjoyed making towers to 10, ordering numbers 1-10 and counting pictures to see how many there were. It is really tricky to count things which we can’t move, so the children put a line through the ones they had counted. They have blown me away with their super counting!

On Thursday we enjoyed a Christmas dinner with crackers, turkey, stuffing, hats and silly jokes. What a lot of fun!

Next week we look forward to watching the KS1 dress rehearsal for their Nativity performance on Monday. On Wednesday we will go to Church in the afternoon to join KS2 doing their carol concert.

On Thursday 20th December it is the Sponsored Santa Dash, please come to school in Christmas jumpers and remember to bring sponsorship forms and any money you have collected on or before Thursday. Family and friends you are welcome to stay and watch or join in, we will register the children and come straight back out to make a start!

On Friday 21st December we will break up for Christmas at 2pm.

Enjoy your weekend,

Miss Dixon and Mrs Mahoney
