A great week in Class R! It started on a sad note, as Goldilocks had been into our classroom over the weekend and messed it all up. We re-told the story over the week, made some lovely porridge and talked about how it had changed, discussed size and talked about not wandering off and going into strangers houses.
We made some great story maps of the story and the children produced some fantastic paintings of bears. We talked about size and made a bed for teddy to fit into.
I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas break. We have had a lovely first week and have started our new topic ‘Once Upon a Time’. This has a literacy focus and the children have chosen some books for us to base our topic on. An overview is attached.
Also attached is a letter all about our learning this term and some new maths challenges. Please could your child bring these in on a Monday for us to share.
We have had a lovely start to Christmas. This week we have been thinking about Advent and the Nativity story. We have made our role play area into the stable and the children have been dressing up and acting out the story. We have been busy sewing and as part of our Environmental Day on Thursday, we made a big Christmas tree picture made out of recycled materials. We went to Druitt Gardens and collected some natural materials for some pictures in the style of Andy Goldsworthy – with fantastic results.
We also won the Caretakers cup for a super tidy classroom.
