This week in phonics we have learned ch, qu and x. We have also learned the tricky words’ they’ and ‘all’. Manyata was a super word detective this week, and found our tricky word 'all' in a book she had been reading. In maths we have introduced weighing scales to the classroom, and the children have been weighing objects, and discussing whether or not they are heavy.
In literacy this week we read ‘The Jolly Postman’, and discussed how to write a letter. The children were encouraged to independently write their own letters to Father Christmas. They cut out pictures of interesting toys, and labelled them. Some children even included sentences in their letters. Our role play area has now become Santa’s workshop. The children are beginning to design their own toys to make with junk modelling materials.
We have been very busy practising for our Nativity this week. The children have worked really hard to learn the songs and their lines. We are looking forward to performing our nativity for our families next Monday and Tuesday.
