This week we have focussed on the story ‘Ten in the Bed’ by Penny Dale. This is a lovely story that involves counting down from ten as different characters fall out of the bed. The story has linked well with our Mathematics this week as we have been learning about one less and one more. We also learnt to draw a hedgehog, which is one if the characters in the story.
The kitchen has been very busy with children thoroughly enjoying the toast making. Some children ended up with jam all over their faces!
The children have been learning some special Christmas celebration songs – you may have already heard a snapshot from them singing at home. They are very catchy tunes!
Linking with nursery rhymes this week, we have learnt the signs for sleep and bed.
We have been learning how to make our vocabulary grow. Instead of using the word ‘tired’, we learnt that we could use the words: ‘sleepy’, ‘drowsy’, ‘weary’, and ‘shattered’.
Please have a look at the Home Learning that has been attached to find some fun activities that link to each area of your child’s learning. We would love to hear from you about your child’s home learning. Please could you email these to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Just a reminder:
- Every Tuesday and Friday your child can change their home reading book. This book will be matched to their current phonic knowledge; therefore, they should be able to read the text using their phonic skills. Please can your child bring in their book bag or school bag every day to put their books inside.
- We are collecting recycled materials for our junk modelling station. Ideally we would like small boxes, washed yoghurt pots and small containers. Please can we ask that any recycled material that previously had nut products inside do not come in due to allergies that we have in school. Please could the items be brought in a bag. Thank you
