Date: 8th December

What we have been learning this week...

This week, in English, we focused on letter formation and handwriting.  We also read the next part of the poem, “The Owl and the Pussycat”.  In Maths, we finished our topic on shape.  We are getting really good at naming 2D and 3D shapes now.  In RE, we continued our work on Judaism and we listened to the story of Ruth and Naomi.  The children remembered the word "mitzvah" which means 'good deed'.  We also had lots of fun rehearsing for our Christmas nativity this week!

Activities we enjoyed this week...

 In RE, we had lots of fun making model characters to help us to retell the story of Ruth and Naomi.   


How you can help...

Please ensure that your child brings their book to school each Friday so that we can change their reading book.  Please continue to read with your child every day.   

This Friday your child will bring home a sound mat containing all of the phase 2 and 3 sounds.  You could pop this on your fridge and practice the sounds with your child each day.
