Stay and play reminder…

Just to remind you that we have some stay and play sessions next week. They are:

  • Tuesday 12th December from 2:30pm
  • Wednesday 13th December until 9:30am

Story time will be on Tuesday 12th December so it can fit in with the stay and play session.

We hope to see you there and you will have the opportunity to look through your child’s learning journal and we ask that you fill in their most up to date unique child summary.

A reminder also that phones should be away when in the classroom at any time to ensure we can safeguard all of our children.

Many thanks

Have a lovely weekend 🙂





Citizens award…

This week our citizens award went to Theo and Iris, they have both tried really hard with ‘coping with change’ensuring that they are thinking about their choices in new situations and listening carefully to any changes that might be happening throughout the day. Keep up the good work!!

Next week we will be looking for children that are making good choices in the run up to Christmas. There will be no award assembly but children’s efforts will be recognised in class.

Our learning for week beginning Monday 11th December…

Next week the children will be taking part in different Christmas activities. They will be incorporating what they have learnt in phonics and maths over the half term to the different tasks.

We will be continuing to practice our Christmas nativity to ensure we are all ready for the big performance on Friday 15th December at 10:30am.

How you can help at home:

Continuing to read with your child 5 times a week,  please ensure you have written a comment and signed your child’s reading record so we know to change their book. Presenting your child with opportunities to recognise phonemes (sounds) and numbers to 20 in different contexts.

Practice the song ‘away in a manger’ with your child for our performance next week.

Over the holidays the children will be given some maths and phonics resources to help them at home.



Home learning for this week…

This week we would like the children to practice the song ‘Away in a manger’ for our upcoming nativity performance. Please help your child to learn the words when they are at home.

The words are as follows…

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,

The Little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head.

The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay,

The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.


The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,

but little Lord Jesus no crying He makes.

I love you, Lord Jesus, look down from on high

And stay by my side until morning is nigh.


Be near me, Lord Jesus, Iask you to stay

Close by me forever and love me, I pray.

Bless all the dear children in your tender care,

And fit us for heaven to live with you there.

Have a lovely weekend 🙂

Citizens award…

This week we celebrated our citizens award in class and it was awarded to Robson. Robson uses his imagination in many areas of learning when he is at school and is very creative during his child initiated play. It has been lovely to see the variety of models that he has made with the junk modelling since September. Well done Robson, keep up the creativity!!

Next week the citizens award will be for children who are coping well with change; adapting their behaviour to different situations and listening carefully for changes that might be happening during the school week.
