Hi everyone!

 

It’s almost the countdown to Christmas now and we have already started practising our Christmas Nativity! The children are so excited to show you their amazing acting, singing, and performing skills. We hope you are as excited as we are!

 

We are also busy in phonics learning tricky words (words that cannot be blended and sound out), digraphs (when 2 letters make 1 sound) and learning how to read and write words and simple sentences. We are also practising writing lists and labels suing phonic knowledge to sound words out.

 

In maths we are learning to add and subtract in a range of different contexts, to record number sentences, to count in 2s and double numbers to 5.

 

Twice a week the children do dough disco using playdough to help strengthen their hand and finger muscles and they continue to use play dough in the classroom provision to help with their fine motor skills. They also love getting messy and creative to help with skills by box modelling, making collages and painting.

 

We are continuing to look at emotional health and well-being in PHSE this half term. We have done lots of learning about feelings and how to recognise how we are feeling, what others are feeling and how to help ourselves and others with managing feelings. This half term we will focus a lot on how to recognise causes of different feelings and how we can change negative feelings and outcomes into positive ones.

 

As always please come and see us if you have any questions, worries or if there is anything you’d like to share with us about your child’s home achievements.

 

Mrs Aston. Mrs Morton and Miss Finlay
