Week 5

It's December!

I can't quite believe that we are in December already. We have hung up our advent calendar in the class today and can't wait to decorate the tree and classroom over the next few days.



This week in maths we have been learning to compose and de-compose numbers to five. This is where we look at different arrangements of numbers two to five. The children then explain in their own words what their arrangement looks like. E.g. 'I know there are four because I can see two at the bottom and two at the top'. 




In phonics this week we have learnt the last set of new diagraphs for Autumn. Over the next couple of weeks we will be applying them to a variety of words.



Hearing tests 

Just a reminder that if you haven't already signed up to receive your child's hearing test results, then please do this as soon as possible. The hearing tests will take place on Monday 5th December. The letter is attached below. 




Rehearsals for our Christmas Nativity are going well. The stage is up and we're all getting excited to share it with you. 


If you need to exchange your tickets for a different time or would like an additional ticket I still have spares available.


Have a wonderful weekend

Mrs Rudkin and the lovely RR team
