A very busy week!
These week we have been very busy as we successfully performed two nativities! The children were amazing and I'm sure we will see some of our children on the West End one day! We also made our Christingles and took part in a service led by Rev. Mark and to top it off we wrote our Christmas lists to Santa and headed off to post them in the post box. I do hope Santa has a big sleigh!
Our learning this week
This week we have been very busy starting our Christmas festivities. Our home corner has been converted into Santa's grotto and the children have used lots of imagination and descriptive language as they have become Mr and Mrs Claus. They also decided to write lists of who santa will be visiting this year! I wonder who is on it!
This week we are going to be completing an independent write and the children will write their Christmas list to Santa. They have eagerly been discussing the toys they would like and have been using their phonic knowledge to sound out the words.
The children watched the pantomine this week which was 'Pinocchio' and parents had written on the blog about the excited conversations the children had when they got home! It really was fabulous!
The children have been challenged to make shapes in the continuous provision using lolly sticks and they had to describe the properties of each shape too. Some of the children decided to use the lolly sticks to make the initial letter of their name.
Next week are our Nativities on Tuesday morning and afternoon. The children have been working really hard perfecting their lines and acting skills. We can't wait for you to see it!
Wow! Look at our regular readers this week that have read at least five times this week and have done this over the last four weeks.
You are amazing! Reading with your children gives them the skills needed for when they start to read themselves. It is important that children learn to follow words across the page from left to right, and turn pages which are pre-reading skills that benefit children and help them to become better readers later on.
Some of our children are sounding out the phonemes and blending them together. They are so proud of themselves and so are we!
Keep it up!
