Our Nativity on Monday was a huge success. The children looked wonderful and they acted and sang amazingly making us all very proud. The photos that Mrs. Turner took are simply stunning.
We had a great time at our party on Thursday and all looked super snazzy on Friday for our Christmas jumper day.
We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year 😃
This week we have been busy making our photo frames for the Christmas fair. We have also been making our Christmas cards and calendars. In our home corner we have had a Christmas wrapping station! We wear Christmas hats and help each other to cut paper and sticky tape to wrap presents- it is very tricky but we have developed new skills to help us be like little elves! It is a great way to do lots of maths and improve fine motor skills.
We talked about Christingle and all made our own. We had a lovely Christingle assembly and sang some Christingle songs.
In literacy we have been doing some super writing. We thought about the question "If you could go anywhere, where would you go?" Some fabulous suggestions in Class 1 for example: New York, Africa, Ibiza, Disneyland and even the moon!
We had a very exciting visit from PC Smith and PC Dewhurst this week. They brought their big police van to show us. All the children enjoyed finding out about the vehicle and even got to go inside it. We were very surprised to find out it had a jail in the back of it! They told us lots about different police vehicles and the children were great at asking lots of questions 😃
This week in literacy we have been working really hard on writing super sentences. We need to remember a capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and to always do our very best letters that we learn in read, write Inc.
In maths we have been using ten frames to make our numbers. We have even been using two ten frames to make the numbers 11-20.
On Friday we had our sponsored sing showcase and it was fantastic! Thank you to all the grown ups who came to watch and for the money we have raised so far. Next Tuesday (5th December) is the last day for returning any sponsor money and forms. (Spare forms available from Class 1)
We have loved "World Nursery Rhyme week" and have learned a new rhyme every day. The children will be bringing home a song booklet tomorrow so that they can rehearse at home ready for our "Sponsored sing showcase" which is next Friday- 24th November at 9am. If anyone has misplaced their sponsor form don't worry the office have spares :-)

We had a lovely morning at the library on Wednesday morning. The lady at the library read us lots of brilliant stories and then we all got to choose our own book to bring back to school. We are enjoying them at story times and quiet reading times in class.
Welcome back :-) To finish off our topic we had 2 exciting visitors from Abbey Vets. All the children enjoyed making their own cuddly pets better with bandages, injections and checking their heartbeats with stethoscopes! It really was a fabulous morning.
