Dear Parents,

We have had a lovely week creating dragon descriptions in literacy and learning our number bonds to 10 using the Farmer Pete song – you can find this link on our class blog here to watch the video.

Literacy – Next week we will complete our dragon descriptions and illustrate our class dragon books. The children have all worked hard on their descriptive words and phrases.

Maths – We will be practising our mental maths through lots of mini challenges and games.

Topic – We have looked at homes in the water village of Kampong Ayer in Brunei and compared these with homes in the local area. Next week we will spend time exploring older homes and household objects.

At home – A few ideas for you to try at home this week:

  • Practise correct letter formation with your child.
  • Write a letter to Santa – don’t forget to use correct letter formation!
  • Countdown the days until Christmas.

We look forward to seeing you at the Christmas Bazaar tonight. We will be on the chocolate tombola trying hard not to eat the prizes!

Have a relaxing weekend!

Miss Mabin and Mrs Burkill
