Week Beginning 7 November 2016

No School: A reminder that Friday (November 11) is a staff training day so there will be no school for children on Friday. Monday (14) and Tuesday (15) are also school holidays so there is no school.

MESSAGES

  • Any photos and videos taken in school of groups of children during the normal school day should only be taken by school staff or with the agreement of school staff.  At no point should any images of children at school be shared using social media without the parents’ permission. Thank you for your support.
  • If you bring your child to school please can you ensure you arrive on time. It is a vital part of the day for the children to settle and socialise with their friends as well as complete the register and morning routines on time. It is also important to ensure that your child is collected from school promptly at 3:30 as late pick-ups cause problems with ECA’s and children going to BISCAP’s.
  • As the weather has now changed, please ensure that your children’s spare clothes in school are suitable for the colder months.

LEARNING THEME: Christmas                                                                               

THE BIG QUESTION: WHY DO WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS?

Over the past two weeks we have been looking at what a celebration is and investigating lots of different kinds of celebrations. This week we will be thinking about Christmas and and looking at the different ways people celebrate this holiday around the world and where it all came  from. This will be followed next week by the preparations for our winter production.

COMMUNICATION AND LANGUAGE

We will be sharing different versions of the story of Christmas with the children each day to give them an insight into why we celebrate this holiday. After sparking the interest, we will be encouraging the children to talk about, retell and even act out their favourite version of the story of Christmas, drawing on their attention and recall skills as well as their use of full sentences when speaking.

PHONICS

We will continue playing some simple phonics games with the children to develop their listening skills.

MATHS

In Maths the children will be working on counting out a set amount of objects from a larger group, for example counting six objects out of a set of ten.This helps the children to understand the value in counting and also the importance of stopping at your desired amount. The children will be encouraged to do this using various materials that interest them.
