We are approaching the start of Advent and we will be looking at the meaning of Advent and reading an Advent poem and correcting the spelling and grammar mistakes. We will be continuing to practise the English and Welsh carols we are learning for Christmas, working on our Christmas corridor display and talking, in French, about how we feel. Our Welsh phrase of the week is "Tyrd yma" (Come here) and our handwriting letter is "n". This week's Readiwriter words have been changed. Please practise these at home. A DOJO point is given to everyone who scores 1000 points or more but a DOJO point is taken away for those who don't achieve 1000 points. Readiwriter is now working properly and sheets will no longer be sent home. Please can all children have jumpers and coats at school as the weather is much colder. May we also ask please that ALL items of clothing, including coats, have your child's name on them. When items go missing it is extremely difficult to find them if they don't have your child's name in them.

Many thanks.
