This week started with some of the children deciding to brave the cold wear their and explore the heavy frost on the school field. We looked at it close up using a magnifying glass and were amazed at the beautiful patterns on the grass. Then we enjoyed making different shapes and trails in the frost. Can you work out which letter Harvey wrote?

We spent a lot of time this week talking about numbers, counting accurately and putting them in order.

Wednesday we took our Candy Canes to the Christmas enterprise Fair and by the end of the afternoon we were sold out, which was brilliant. We made a total of £53 and now we have to decide how we would like use it.

Friday was our Christmas Party day. We enjoyed playing games in the morning then after dinner we had a special visit from Father Christmas followed by party food!

This week Foundation have been preparing their Reindeer Candy Cane decorations for the Christmas Enterprise Fair on Wednesday afternoon, 13th December. There will be lots of other exciting gifts to buy so we hope to see you there.

We have also been learning how a story map can help us to remember a sequence, maybe a song or rhyme, a story or our Nativity story. We had to put the pictures in the right order so that the Christmas Story made sense.

In maths we looked at lots of different vocabulary such as more, fewer and estimating and we recorded our work in different ways.

Finally on Friday we had the chance to go to our first school disco which was lots of fun.

This week we spent time preparing for the Christmas Tree Festival at St Swithun’s Church. Each of us made a decoration using our handprint then Miss Stallworthy took the finished tree to the church on Friday. The Christmas tree festival is on until Saturday 2nd December where you will be able to see all of the wonderful trees. 

We learned about the different parts of a tree and spent a long time thinking about the different words we could use to describe their leaves. Thank you very much for all the leaves you collected for your homework.

On Friday we even planted our own fir tree in the courtyard.
This week we also went onto the stage for the first time and we can’t wait to show you our Christmas Nativity on Friday!
