Good Evening Class!
I hope I find you all well this evening? wow, I can’t believe we’re already into December. Before we know it we’ll be send all the children off for the Christmas break. We are well on our way with practice for the Christmas play, please keep an eye out for information regarding dates for Christmas events as they will come thick and fast as we hurtle towards the final week of term. A date for your diaries; 12th December, the children will be completing their dress rehearsal for the play, therefore could you please send your child into school with a Christmas jumper this is in addition to the Christmas jumper day.
In maths the children have completed their shape unit this week, we explored both 2D and 3D shapes. The children revisited the names of shapes and took part in problem solving challenges which entailed exploring the key features of different shapes. Next week, we will be starting a new unit; Place Value (Numbers within 20) which will see us up until the Christmas break.
In English the children completed their unit on setting descriptions, but will continue to utilise, ‘Twas the night before Christmas to influence their work. We will be writing Christmas Poetry.
RWI Home learning:
Practice your story green words and red words from your home reading book on a piece of paper at home. These can be found on the How to help your child read this book page.

In preparation for our new unit, I would like the children to have a go at the game below:
The children only need to visit numbers up to 19 for next week, but if they excel they could attempt numbers to 29 and 49 if you wish.
