Another activity packed week!  We have been reading the story Walking Through the Jungle, thinking about different settings and making up our own versions of the story. We have practised different types of moving and have been giving instructions to a programmable toy to move to different jungle animals. In maths we have been doing lots of counting, measuring with elephant tape measures and water play, thinking about full and empty. We have been finding out information from non fiction books and have been playing jungle croquet, counting our scores.

This week sees the beginnings of Christmas!  We will be learning about Advent and the Nativity story.

How you can help at home this week:   Help your child to write their name with the correct letter formation. There will be a small prize before Christmas for all children that can achieve this.

Well done to our pupil of the week. She has been really brave coming into school over the last couple of weeks.




Class R – RE Learning

Why do Christians perform Nativity plays at Christmas?

Your child should;

  • know why Christians celebrate Christmas
  • be able to re-tell the Nativity story


We have had a great couple of weeks doing lots of activities based around the Tinga Tinga Tales. The children have produced some fantastic Tinga Tinga artwork and have enjoyed playing in our exploring role play area. They have made sound effects from the jungle and we have been thinking about settings and characters in books. We continue with our daily phonics and maths sessions and it is lovely to see the children progressing.

This week we will be doing some work around the book Walking In the Jungle and Giraffes Can’t Dance.

How you can help at home this week: Help your child to learn the song Little Donkey in readiness for the school Nativity.


Well done to our Learner of the Week. This week all classes chose a pupil who had shown good resilience , which is one of our learning values.
