LEARNING THEME : Christmas

Our learning theme will continue to focus on Christmas  this week but will revolve around our wonderful concert. We have been practising hard and the children are looking forward to seeing  you there. We would like to ask that all parents are sat in stage one by  9.15am  at the latest and we will bring the children in just after this for a prompt start. Although we realise this is a very special time,  flash photography is very off putting for the children. We will try to build in time for photographs at the end. Thank you in advance for your co-operation withthis!

Key Vocabulary: Christmas, Santa, presents,  winter, joy.

Expressive art and design

This week the children will be creating a special gift for their family. What will it be? They will need to think about the skills needed to create their gift, what materials will work best and how they will wrap it!

Key Vocabulary: make, create, roll, cut, wrap

Literacy

As the year draws to a close we will talk to the children about  holidays and where we will fly off to. The children will make some marks about where they are going and what they will be getting there on. Will they fly? Will they take the train? Are there any children going to the same place?

Key vocabulary: Where, who, what, how, when

Papa en Jules gaan een kerstboom kopen in de boomkwekerij.  Wanneer ze thuis komen kan de boom niet door de deur.  Hij is te groot!  Wat nu?

We kleden ons lekker warm aan voor het winterseizoen en versieren de kerstboom in de klas.  Prettige kerstdagen!

Door een wisseling in het lessenrooster gaan we vanaf deze week op dinsdag  naar bibliotheek. Onze excuses voor het ongemak.  Dank  voor uw medewerking hierbij.
