Happy December everyone!
Hope you have all kept cosy and warm at home. It was rather chilly at school today!

A very busy week – it has flown past! We have learnt how to add a ‘s’ to simple words to show we have more than one of something. Eg; cats, hats, socks, dogs. We have also learnt the digraphs ch and qu (2 letters – one sound). Really impressed with the segmenting and blending in Beech class. They are all trying really hard. Keep up the hard work children!

Our book this week was “we are going on a bear hunt’. The children have drawn some amazing pictures and really impressed us with their independent spelling of big and bear. We also have had great fun acting the story out! The children all worked together to think of the most suitable actions for each part of the story.

In Maths, we have continued our work on the numbers 4 and 5. We have looked at the composition, more than and less then. We had great fun in the role play shop selling current ones using the nursery rhyme to help us! One current bun in the bakers shop, round and fat with a cherry on top….

We have been super busy practicing our school Nativity. Thank you to those who have sent in costumes. Can you please check your child’s book bag to make sure they haven’t got a letter lurking about their costume. Most of the children are all sorted but some do need plain black leggings and top or plain white leggings and top. We are looking forward to seeing you at the performances on Tuesday or Wednesday.

The afternoons this week have consisted of lots of art activities, song practice for the Nativity, construction afternoons and lots of role play. We have been very fortunate to have had some lovely new resources brought for Beech class and the children have LOVED playing with all the new things. Very proud of how well they have looked after and respected the new toys. Well done team Beech.

We wondered how many of you had a visit from a cheeky elf this morning? Looking forward to hearing all about the mischief they may have been causing!

Have a lovely weekend!
Keep warm – it’s going to be a chilly one.
See you on Monday.
Miss Shadbolt, Mrs Kenny and Mrs Millichamp.
