This week we have been very busy. We have been writing our numbers 0 to 20 on candy canes, writing letters to Santa, making Christmas crafts, wrapping presents and retelling the story of The Nativity too.
We have also been ordering numbers to 20 using stockings and have been able to identify missing numbers too.

Thank you for your photos the children love seeing pictures of each other on the big screen and getting enthusiastic about talking to the whole class too. Their confidence is growing every week!
Half- Term Challenge
Please can your child keep a picture dairy of one of their days in half-term. This gives them something to talk about when we are back in November. If you could email me anything that will help them to discuss it this would be great!
Enjoy your Half-Term! Keep safe and have Fun !
Your child will be coming home with a short report today to let you know how they have settled in this half term. This time in school has been a little stranger and a little different to previous years. The children have been an absolute pleasure to have in the class. They have adapted so well to the routines, especially hand washing! They have enjoyed getting to know me and all the staff in the Reception classes and I am so VERY proud of them all!!
This half term please keep safe !! After half term we will be understanding Remembrance Day and doing a lot of Poppy craft.
