WEDNESDAY WORD – ADVENT

Our Wednesday Word Champions for this week are Olivia Peake and Payton Anderson for showing how they can be more like Jesus in the way that they conduct themselves in school. Well done to the both of you.

 

I FOLLOW “THE OZZIES WAY” CHAMPIONS

Well done to Ruby Dunn and Jude Senaratne this week, who have been caring towards others who have been upset in class this week. Well done to both of you.

 

WHAT HAVE LEARNT THIS WEEK – During our Come and See (R.E) sessions we have learnt about Advent and how we prepare for Christmas. The children have enjoyed creating decorations for our classroom and helped to decorate the classroom ready for Christmas. The children also helped to generate some Advent challenges for our Advent calendar showing how we can be more like Jesus every day during Advent.

 

Within our literacy sessions, the children have been learning ck and e. They have used these sounds when reading and writing simple words. We have enjoyed reviewing the book ‘Where the Wild things are’.  The children shared their reasons for why they liked or did not like the story. They could talk about the setting, characters and events that happened in the story. During our guided session, the children ordered the story pictures and wrote a sentence about whether they liked the story or not.

In maths, we have focussed on number 9. Looking at how to write it and finding all things nine. We have focussed on 1-1 counting and writing the number 9. The children made their own number 9 dominoes, by sharing the nine spots between the two sides of the domino. We have also been recalling one more and one less than a number within 9.

 

During the afternoon, the children have been continuing to learn the songs for our Christmas performance and have been performing the play each day, practising their words and moving around the stage. We are all very proud of the children and of how they are stepping up to the challenge of putting on a Christmas performance.

 

WEEKEND CHANLLENGE – Thank you for the handwriting homework. This week we will not be setting any homework as we are asking the children to make a star decoration for our school Christmas tree.

 

CHRISTMAS PERFORMANCE The children have been working hard when practising their Christmas performance. They have been able to remember most of their words only needing a few different prompts. Please continue to help the children to learn their words using a loud and clear voice.

 

READING BOOKS – There were a number of children this week who brought in their reading folders without any reading books and reading record books in them. Please ensure that you send in your child’s book on the Monday so that we can change them. We have also stuck in a reading bingo at the front of their reading record. Please help the children to complete the challenges. They have until the spring term to complete them.

 

 

 

 

 

CELEBRATING OUR WORK – On Tuesday at 3.30pm we will be asking parents to come into school to look at their child’s workbooks if they wish. The books will be out in the children’s trays. It will be an opportunity for you to go through the books with your child and talk about their work. We hope that you will be able to attend and celebrate the work that the children have done over the autumn term.
