Dear Red Class,
We started the week exploring Remembrance Day. We used the story “Five Minutes’ Peace’ to think about the meaning of the word peace before making a wreath of poppies for our door.
This week, we used our rhyming skills to read ‘be', ‘me’ and ‘he’. We played a game of ‘Snap’ to help the children to match keywords. Games, like ‘Snap,’ are a great way to support turn taking and visual memory skills. Next week, we will learn the last few single letter sounds and a new set of letters will be sent home in the blue books.
You were super at exploring length this week. We used the vocabulary of short, shorter, shortest, long, longer, longest and the same. Can you compare the length of items at home? Maybe, you could compare socks!
We try not to mention Christmas before 1st December, however, we have started to learn songs and a dance for our Christmas play at St Catherine’s Church. Every Thursday, we join together with Green Class to sing songs from the play. So, you might start hearing Christmas songs at home.
I’m really looking forward to talking to your parents next Tuesday and Wednesday for our termly meeting. This is an opportunity for your parents to look at your books and to find out about your learning at school.
Thank you for helping us to raise money for Children in Need. We hope they have a successful night. Finally, I hope the weather looks a little brighter over the next few days. Rest, play and enjoy the weekend!
Mrs Webb, Mrs Reid, Mrs Cain and Miss Davis xxxx
