Our new topic this half term is 'celebrations', where the children will have the opportunity
to learn about different special occasions such as Bonfire Night, Diwali, Birthdays and
Christmas, to name but a few. During circle time we will discuss the ways in which these
celebrations are the same and different and why they are special to different people. We
hope that the children will talk about their own experiences of these customs too. In the
lead up to Christmas we will learn about the story of the birth of Jesus and put on a
'Nativity', for you to enjoy.
Primary Writing Project
Our actions story this half term will be 'My Presents', by Tod Campbell. This links in nicely
with our topic of ''Celebrations.' We will immerse ourselves in the book for the next couple
of weeks. After which we will draw pictures on a story map to help children remember the
story in the correct order. Finally we will make a large class book and encourage the
children to make their own 'My Presents', book. Please come and speak to Mrs Sidebottom
if you would like anymore information.
We will be sending a Learning Log home where the #30 Menu
challenge will be. 10 of these need to be chosen over the term. The Learning Log is so that you can show all the exciting things you have been doing at home.
100 Reading Challenge
In addition to the above, there will be a 100 Reading Challenge where parents are encouraged to read a bedtime story to their child. This can be ticked off on the grid and your child will receive a special reward when they get to 100.
