Beech Newsletter 8-12-23

Good afternoon.
We want to start by saying a massive thank you to all of the children for the wonderful performances of Whoopsy Daisy Angel. They all worked super hard and did us super proud. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Lots of festive cheer in Beech class this week.

We have learnt the new phonemes nk, ng, sh and th. The children all know these digraphs and recognise that it is two letters to make one sound. Please please encourage your child to read and blend at home. Even encouraging them to spot sounds they know will help them. Some children have got blending packs in their book bags tonight, please use these to segment and blend simple words. Every little helps.

This week our book was Zog by Julia Donaldson. The children have drawn some amazing dragons and have even started to write short sentences in their books. It is great to see how much more confidence they have when writing.

In maths we have finished looking at number bonds to 5.
The children have enjoyed using compare bears to see what numbers go together to make 5!

Well done to Lavinia who is our golden certificate winner this week for her fabulous efforts as Whoopsy Daisy Angel 😇! Well done Lavinia.

Enjoy the weekend.
See you at the Christmas fayre!

Miss Shadbolt, Mrs Kenny and Mrs Millichamp.
