What we will be learning:




In RE this week we have been looking at the nativity story.  We have performed our nativity play, which we hope you have enjoyed watching.  Below our some photos taken at the end.  The children were all superstars by saying their words loudly and clearly and singing beautifully with actions.




This week the children have been revising the sounds that they have previously learnt and applying them in activities that practice their reading and writing skills.




This week we have continued to look at our daily routines and talk about when we all do certain activities throughout the day. 




Please try to hear your child read every day.  If they have no words in their books, please ask your child to tell you the story by using the pictures.  Please sign to say they have read each day in their reading record and make any relevant comments.  Reading books are to be returned on Fridays so they can be isolated over the weekend before new ones being sent out on a Monday.  Please can you send your child's reading record in every day so that we can record when they do Guided Reading with an adult in class.

Key Information
In Reception school reading books are changed weekly. Your child will be allocated a book on Mondays and they must be returned on Fridays for isolation. If there is no comment in your child's Reading Record we will assume you have not had a chance to read with your child and therefore your child may take home the same book(s). Please record the text title(s) in your child's Reading Record. 
Our P.E. day is Thursday. P.E. kits should be kept in school at all times. We will send them home over the school holidays. Long hair needs to be tied back and earrings are not allowed to be worn in school at any time. It would be helpful if girls could have a pair of white ankle socks in their PE bag for the days they come to school wearing tights.
Our Forest School day is Friday and will be lead by Mrs Collins.  Please make sure your child has their forest school kit and wellies in school.
