Wks beg 7.12.20 & 14.12.20
For the last two weeks of term, we will be focusing on the celebration of Christmas. We will be finding out about why people celebrate Christmas, how they might celebrate and how different countries all around the world mark this festival. We will also be finding out about Hannukah, a different festival that takes place at this time of the year for Jewish people. It is important that children understand that not everybody does celebrate Christmas and to talk about people who have different lives and experiences to them.
We are really looking forward to getting in the Christmas spirit in class and are already enjoying our Winter book advent calendar in class, where we unwrap and share a different Wintery story each day. We are also having a fabulous time in our Christmas Card Shop role play area and looking at our class Christmas Tree which the children made decorations for themselves. The children's awe, wonder and excitement really has been an important reminder of the joy that can still be found in these most unusual of times, when Christmas will not look quite the same.
Some Christmassy reminders:
- All Christmas cards must be brought into school before 14th December so that they can be quarantined before being handed out on the last day of term.
- We are not able to welcome you into school for a Christmas play this year Reception are working on a little show that we will be recording for you over the next week. Keep your eyes peeled for this.
- On the last day of term (18th December) please can you send your child with an empty bag (bag for life or carrier bag) as they will have LOTS to bring home. They should not bring a book bag or PE kit bag on that day.
Please find below the Class Learning and Home Learning for the next two weeks. Keep posting on Tapestry to let us know how you are getting on with these tasks and with any other learning you are doing at home. We really hope that you and your family are able to find some Christmas joy during this difficult time.
Yours (a very festive team),
Miss Bagnall, Mrs Roath, Miss Davies, Mrs Painter, Mrs Leach and Mrs Bromley
