Week Beginning Monday 23rd November
We have started rehearsing for our nativity play 'Dinky Donkeys' this week. If you get a chance to help your child to practise their words this weekend, that would be great! Please bring in any costumes at the beginning of next week if you have not already done so. Any problems - please ask! Thank you!
RE - Advent. We thought of the different ways people get ready for Christmas during advent.
Maths - We have been using money to compare different amounts. We showed the comparisons by using the inequality and equals signs.
Art - We made some beautiful Christmas tree decorations. We cut different lengths of paper, stuck them to lolly sticks and decorated with sequins. A lovely way to spend a cold and foggy Friday afternoon!
Fine Motor Skills - We have been doing some early morning work when we first come in this week to practise our fine motor skills. One of the activities was to build a tower out of 'hama beads'. It was more tricky than it looks!

Our science work this week also involved research, along with a wet, muddy but fun afternoon. We enjoyed searching and investigating minibeast habitats and managed to find quite a few. We then wrote about some of the microhabitats we had located and created pictograms to show how many minibeasts each of us had found, back in the classroom.
