Newsletter 10 – Autumn Term 17th November 2016

Happy Home Learning
We have been continuing our learning about Goldilocks and the 3 Bears and we have been learning about size. Can you order your teddies from biggest to smallest? We would love to see and hear all about your learning next week.
Foundation Stage 2
This week in literacy we have been reading Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. We have made wanted posters and even wrote letters to Goldilocks. In your homework book can you draw and label a picture of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears? Remember to use your Fred Fingers to sound the words out and write the sounds you can hear.
In maths we have been ordering objects by size. Please practise this with things in your home (teddies, cups, toys etc.) You could take a picture and stick it in your book.
We would also like you to practise getting dressed and undressed by yourselves. We have been doing really well at this in PE so remember to keep practising!
Year 1
Reading – Please read your reading book. Is it fiction or non fiction? What did you learn about in your non fiction book? What did you like about the story in your fiction book?
Spellings – he, his, has, toy, boy, enjoy, annoy.
Writing – Can you write some facts about penguins in your homework book?

Christmas Lunch
As you are aware the Christmas Lunch will be on Thursday 15th December and the choices for the day are (Red) Christmas dinner with Roast Turkey and all the trimmings, (Yellow) Cheese flan. Please note that there will be no chilled choice selection on this day and you will need to provide a packed lunch from home if your child does not want a hot dinner.
The cook needs to know how many she is catering for in advance and we would ask that you make your child’s selection before next Tuesday by ticking the relevent column next to their name on the list in each classroom. We will not be able to order any extra hot lunches after next Tuesday and if no selection is made you will need to provide a packed lunch on the day.
Visit to Sundown Adventureland

If you can help with donations of buns please bring them to your child’s classroom tomorrow morning. Thank you
