What a busy start to the week! So far, we’ve had a dress rehearsal for our retelling of the Christmas story, Christmas lunch and two fantastic shows performances!
In between all the festivities, we’ve been continuing to learn new sounds and use these within our reading and writing, work on our number bonds and use our knowledge on repeated patterns to make decorations.
We’ve even managed to fit in a science experiment! We are looking at what happens to water when it is frozen- so we are hoping for some really cold weather over the next week!
Excitement levels are increasing in class as we continue to practise for our Christmas nativity which takes place next week. The children are all doing well to learn their lines and movements on and off the stage.
In maths, we have been learning about subtraction and repeating patterns. We have been using our knowledge of repeating patterns to help with our Christmas decorations. The school is looking truly festive!
We had some help from the P6s this week. They helped us with some online number games.
We are continuing to work on previous sounds, new sounds and blending. P6 also helped with our reading this week.
