Hello Red Class,
This week, you worked very hard to rehearse your Christmas play and today we filmed your little production. Thank you to your families for sending in items for your costume. You all looked fantastic. At such a young age, it always amazes me how you manage to sing, dance and put on a great show. I know it’s Christmas when a costume falls down or a tea towel falls off! It wouldn’t be the same without those moments.
Leading up to this week, we’ve been learning about the Christmas story using songs, story books, story cards and role play props. Each morning, we’ve listened to a popular Christmas song linked to the Christmas story. The children have recognised the songs from being in the car or at home and we’ve enjoyed talking about the meaning of the lyrics.
In phonics lessons, we’ve looked at sh (bush), ch (chop), th (thin) and ng (wing). If you’re missing these cards from your phonics book, then please send your book into school and we will stick them in for you. You can keep your first phonics book at home. We will complete your second book in the New Year.
Over the weekend, please practise the words to our Red Class song, ‘Away in a Manger’. We’re singing the first two verses. You might find the following website helpful: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06q8m3c
Thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Fair. If you were unable to attend, we still have a few Forest School wands left to sell. They will be available until the end of next week. We also have a star from the top of one of the wands that was found on the path outside school. Please pop into school, if this belongs to you.
Finally, we will send PE kits home on Thursday after the Christmas performances.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend,
Mrs Webb, Mrs Reid, Mrs Cain and Miss Davis xxx
