This week the story is The Elves and the Shoemaker as we are starting to learn about traditional tales. We introduce the children to the language that is used in these stories, the way they are structured, where there are set and the characters in them. We hope that by hearing stories like this the children will start using some of these features when they are writing their own stories.
We are starting phonics this week where we introduce the children to the sounds. There is a letter about this in your child's book bag.
In maths we are learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We will go on a shape walk to see which shapes we can spot while we are out and about. We will learn the names of the shapes and their properties.
We are also starting to learn songs for our nativity show. the dates of the nativity are on the website calendar and more details will follow.
The school photographer is here on Wednesday to take individual photos of the children. You will receive a proof of these photos to order from they are ready.
Don't forget parent teacher interviews are taking place at the moment - you should receive a reminder text about these - if you are unable to make your appointment please talk to your child's teacher to rearrange.
Have a good week!
