This week we have been on stage practising our Christmas performance. The children have been trying on their costumes. The children have been practising their singing all over the place - including in the woods!
In Maths we have been comparing groups of objects using the language of more, less and fewer.
Alongside our usual phonics we have been working on our listening skills and our rhythm and rhyme.
Your child should have brought home a letter, outlining their part in the performance and what they need to wear. It would be really useful if they could have these things in school ASAP.
The Wish List:
Thank you to all parents who have contributed items from our wish list. We gratefully received some stickers this week.
I have been in discussion with Class Reps about fundraising to update our role play area. If you have any fundraising ideas please contact Class Reps.
Please make sure your child has their own spare clothes in school in case of accidents. If your child has used any of our spare clothes can they please be returned ASAP.
Please make sure your child always has waterproofs in school. We play outside in the rain so wellies and waterproofs are essential.
There are still 12 parents who have not activated their Tapestry account. I have resent activation links. Please be aware Tapestry emails often automatically go to junk/spam. If you are having difficulty accessing your account please let me know and I can help.
Being a Radiator:

The idea of being a radiator is that we, as adults, are able to radiate language. We can provide 'language nutrients'. It is our job to develop children's language and communication skills.
You can be a radiator by:
I think that we all do lots of things (both educators and parents) already. But it's more about being aware of that teachable moment in everyday conversation.
Have a lovely weekend and have fun being a radiator!
