What a busy week! This week has been our intense practice week ahead of our big performances, we are so excited to release the new Block Buster Reception Nativity! A retelling of the Christian nativity story.
Our Learning This Week…
In Group Learning we have been learning about the story of the Nativity to better understand our performance. They have learnt some of the names of the characters in the story and practising our dancing and singing during our learning time.
In Maths we have been adding one more to numbers from 0 to 10 and beyond if children need some extra challenge. We’ve been looking at number lines and using these to support us.
In PE we have been learning how to balance objects on rackets and to move with control.
Our Learning Next Week
In Group Learning we will be learning about Christmas and how it is celebrated around the world drawing on the short film ‘The Snowman’ as inspiration as he flies around the world. We will also be learning about some of the characters such as Santa Claus, his helpers and Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.
Phonics: Digraph SS and review of all the sounds learnt so far.
Maths: Revisit all areas covered this term
Tapestry Challenge: Draw a Nativity map of Joseph and Mary’s journey to Bethlehem. e.g what did they see on their way? Where did they stop for lunch? Which town or country did they visit?
- Christmas cards- In order to stay safe in these times and save some trees too, a wonderful suggestion is that children can write ONE card for the whole class that will be read and displayed. Please do not send in individual cards. Thank you for your understanding.
- Wednesday: Children to wear a Christmas themed Jumper for Christmas lunch if they wish.
- On Friday 18th December, school is to close earlier and RECEPTION COLLECTION is at 1.15pm
Have a Wonderful Weekend
