Reading for Pleasure
Your child has brought a book home to share with you which they have chosen themself. Every Friday your child will have the opportunity to choose a new book to bring home. Please ensure your child brings their book back to school every Friday, so a new one can be chosen. (PLEASE NOTE THIS WILL START AGAIN SOON)

Dear Parents / Carers,
This week we have started rehearsals in the hall for our Nativity Play. Thank you for working with us in regards to clothing needed for their parts.
Our castle work continues. In History we have been learning about the different parts of a castle and enjoyed constructing one with Miss Marriott (student Teacher) We then labelled a picture of a castle remembering the different parts such as battlements, portcullis, arrow slits.
In D+T we are making our own box model castles thinking about the different parts needed and how we are joining the parts together.
In Science we are continuing our work about ‘Seasonal Changes’ and learnt about what animals do in the different seasons, in a particular we focussed on the robin.
In maths, Reception have continued learning about circles and triangles and using positional language. Year 1 have been thinking about number problems and using their knowledge of number bonds to help them work out the answer.
New reading books have been sent home today. We apologise that not all children were listened to read at school this week due to our Nativity rehearsals. Please read with your child at least 3 times a week and write in their diary.
Reception children have come home with the new sounds and words they have learnt this week on little flashcards, please practise these with your child.
Year 1’s have also brought home their new words and spellings to practise. Next Friday, Year 1’s will ‘have a go’ at writing these words, so please support them in practising these words at home.
What is happening week beginning 4.12.23? – Castles
Monday – PE please ensure your child comes to school wearing their PE kit.
Nasal Flu vaccination. We will be with your child whilst this is given to them by the Nurses. We are aware some children have already had them, this will show on their system, but as we are there we will explain this to them.
Wednesday – Mrs Nicholson is teaching all day with Mrs Petchell.
Friday – Reading books will be sent home along with any flashcards of new sounds or words taught during the phonics sessions this week. Please ensure your child has their reading folder in their bag.

Thank you as always for your continued support.
