We had a fun day on Friday in our Christmas Jumpers and we also recorded our part for the Christmas video. The jumpers can be worn again on Christmas Dinner day next week. Next Friday will be our last day before Christmas so we are going to watch the Polar Express and have some hot chocolate and treats. The children in Reception are invited to come to school in their Pyjamas.
We started the week by making an Advent Wreath. We all helped to put in the leaves and holly. We then held a lovely Prayer Service.
We made shortbread to celebrate St Andrew’s Day.
On Tuesday Mrs Cannon came down to say that she had just had some very exciting visitors. They were two of Santa’s Elves who brought us a reply to our letters for Father Christmas.
We continued our preparations for Advent by making cards and writing a letter to the Residents of The Spinney. We hope that they make them smile.
We listened to the Annunciation Story and then took it in turns to act out the story. We talked about how Mary would have felt and if we would have said ‘Yes’.
We also managed to fit in daily phonics, number 5 work in Mathematics, learn a new word in our Word Aware programme and make Nativity pictures!
We have been learning all about the Sacrament of Marriage. We look at some pictures of a wedding and then we acted out the service. The best bit was sharing the cake afterwards!
We have been counting and matching, exploring Autumn, desinging and making brick houses
We have been very busy this week counting and matching, exploring Autumn, practising phonics, building bricks houses for the Three Little Pigs and looking at different homes around the world. We ended the week playing some board games to practise sharing and turn taking. Next week we will be finding out about our class saint Mother Theresa and learning how to measure height.
Thank you so much for your very generous donations for our Harvest celebrations. The charities receiving them will be most grateful.
Reception have had a exciting week with visits from pirates and building houses out of straw (Three Little Pigs) just two of the highlights. Both topics involved mathematics, literacy and understanding of the world in a fun way. The children now know that a house built of straw is not the best material to use, particularly when its windy (and cleaning up the mess by the staff will not be forgotten either!) They also had fun creating their own maps after following the one the pirates left to find treasure.
Phonemes this week were f ff l ll h b ss we will be recapping these next week to consolidate
Have a lovely weekend.
This week we looked at how we make pancakes. In literacy we wrote the list of ingredients and instructions of how we make pancakes. Unfortunately Mrs Jilks didn’t follow them correctly and made the oil too hot. This set off the fire alarms and we had a trip to the top of the playground. It was all good practise!
We went to church with our prayer friends on Ash Wednesday and were really well behaved during the service. Well done to all.
Thursday we all dressed up for book week and completed fun activities around books.
We ended the week looking at different types of technology and talking about what we use them for.
