This week we will be using the story of ‘The Christmas Eve Tree’ (Delia Huddy) as a starting point for our learning in the classroom.

 To help decorate our new ‘Christmas Classroom,’ we will begin the week by making some ‘Winter Christmas Trees’ using art straws and finger painting!

This week we will also begin practising for our Christmas Performance ‘Straw and Order’ and singing all the different songs telling the Nativity story.

 

Our Sounds of the Week…

This week we will be learning all about the sounds (f) and (l) and use them to read, make and write different words that use those sounds (e.g. fog, lip, etc…).

To support your child at home, you can click on the ‘ABC Joined’ and ‘Jolly Songs’ app above. Both are strategies we use to help the children learn how to read and write their sounds.

[NB, you have to pay a small fee for the ‘ABC Joined’ app but it is fantastic value and well worth it]

 

 

In Maths this week…

In maths we use our theme as a starting point for solving different problems that draw on different mathematical skills. Some of this week’s activities are listed below:

Look at the Christmas Tree. How many red baubles are there? How many green baubles are there? How many are there altogether? Can you write this as a number sentence? [4+4=8]
