This week in English we listened to the Christmas story in preparation for starting the nativity play rehearsals. We retold the story orally and thought about the sequence of the story. We have continued to work on rhyming, thinking really carefully about words that rhyme with each other and also making up rhyming words. We also started to think about the initial sounds of words and the children have been working on finding words that begin with the same sound.
In maths we have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes, the children have investigated the properties of shapes, talking about sides, vertices, edges, corners, faces and whether the edges or sides are straight or curved. The children have made models, pictures and patterns using different shapes.
We have continued to practise the nativity songs and the children seem to be getting on well with this!
