Update for week beginning: 18th November 2019

English and Maths Information:

Our topic next week will be the Gruffalo. The children will have an exciting hook to this new topic and will be sequencing the story as well as describing the characters.

The children will continue to work within 1-10 in Maths to understand and recognise what each individual number represents (subitising).

Next week the sounds that we will be learning are j, v, w and x. A reminder that if you haven’t signed up for the Phonics Workshop (week commencing 25th November) please could you do this next week.

General Information:

Parents evening will be next Tuesday and Wednesday. You will have received a parent mail informing you how to sign up, please let us know if you have any issues. At the parents evening, the teachers will be based in the hall and you will have an opportunity to look at your child’s work in the classroom before or after the appointment.

Thank you for practising the word walls with your children at home. Remember to get your children to say the word straight away and not sound it out as this will help them with fluency when developing their reading skills.

It is that time of the year when we start to get ready for the Nativity! We will be sending home words next week for the children to practise. Our Nativity will be on Tuesday 10th December at 2:00pm and 5:30pm. Details of tickets for the Nativity will be sent out in due course.

Enjoy your weekend!
