The final week of the first term at school is here - we think it's flown by! The children are doing really well but we think lots of them will be glad it's the Christmas holidays!
We are really pleased with how the children have settled into school life and it has been great to see how much they have developed over their first term.
This week we are assessing the children's phonics to see which sounds they have remembered. This will inform us about which phonic group they will need to be in January. It will also help us to sort out sound games and blend games to send home to play. If you're coming to the story cafe on Friday you will hear a bit more about this then.
We will be watching The Snowman ⛄ on DVD and retelling this verbally as a class to practise story telling.
There will also be lots of play this week - the children are enjoying following their own interests. They are brilliant at choosing where they want to play and which resources to use in their play.
We wish everyone a very merry Christmas 🎅 and a happy New Year and hope you all have a lovely holiday!🎄
