A busy week in Oak class exploring our lovely books from Devon Library service, mark making number in flour in our tuff tray, creating different emotions using our Mr Potato head toys and developing our fine motor skills by threading pasta and bead necklaces. 🥰
This week have been continuing our learning about Christmas. We have focussed on our expressive arts and design skills, making decorations, cards and other festive things. 🎄We have also developed our speaking and listening skills, projecting our voices as we practise and record our nativity. I hope you can join us virtually on 15th December.
On Friday, I mentioned to the children that we have a fantastic display to make in class all about our love of reading. The children suggested that they take pictures at home of them reading, maybe in their favourite place, with their pets, or somewhere silly. Please send these pictures through via Dojo to me and I will print these for the display. Thank you for those of you who have already done this. ⭐️
For those of you who have ordered them, Christmas wreaths are coming home today.
As you may be aware, the children have been earning special gems this half term for great learning behaviours, kindness and having a go at new experiences. They have decided that they would like to have a Christmas party (which together we have written a very large wish list for with every child's contribution!) which we will hold next Thursday 17th December. The children have asked to wear their party clothes or something festive to school for the day and to play lots of games, make crafts, have a disco and have a delicious picnic with treats too! If possible, please could you send your child in this week with a £1 contribution towards this. This is voluntary and if any one is unable to contribute, this certainly doesn't mean that the child will miss out.
I look forward to sharing the photos with you from our party day. :) Have a lovely weekend - we are certainly very excited for our next week of learning ahead. 🎅❤️
