Please see the Christmas songs attached below under home work. Please read them over with your children in preparation for the Christmas fair and end of year show.
We have really enjoyed reading The Elves and the Shoemaker this week! We have been doing threading, drawing, writing... it has been brilliant! Thank you for all the lovely homework we have had in. We've loved looking at the children's work and have enjoyed listening to what they have said about their own Baptisms.
The Early Years team (all teachers and nursery nurses) will be attending a Pediatric First Aid training course on Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th afternoon, and therefore will not be in class. Other Mount Carmel TAs will cover the afternoon (most of which the children would have met before). When picking up your child please let them know your child's name. Thank you!
Our Home Wow challenge is attached below, under home learning. Please could you continue to support your child writing their names. The children are very excited to start Bug Club and instructions on how to log your child in are attached below.
As we will soon be starting the countdown to Christmas, we would like the children to think about this special time of year and about what Advent is. Each child will have the opportunity to write their own advent prayer to add to our class book. We will send home an ‘Advent Prayer Book’ to a different child on a daily basis. Please assist your child with writing a prayer, scribe their ideas and allow them to draw a picture. Please ensure this book comes into school the next day as we will use these prayers during our daily Collective Acts of Worship.
We have now set up Bug Club for every child. Please see the document below and follow the instructions on how to access you child's page.
If you have any difficulties accessing Bug Club, please let us know.
We have started weekly reading with the children. Once a week we will listen to your child read and send home two books (one which is a scheme book and one that they have chosen themselves). Please discuss the pictures and listen to your child read. Encourage sounding out each phoneme and then blending them together. Please record any comments you have in the yellow reading record provided. We have attached a timetable below to inform you of when your child will read with us. Please ensure their book folder (two books and yellow reading record) is in on their day.
