An early start on Christmas!

Greetings Platypuses,

I am rather a fan of Christmas so we have started our festivities a little early in Reception! 

We have been learning about the nativity story and have also listened to a fun story called Norman the Slug who Saved Christmas! 

Where was baby Jesus born? (in a stable in Bethlehem) 

Who visited baby Jesus after he was born? (the shepherds and 3 wise men) 

Who was baby Jesus the son of? (Mary and God)

What did Norman the slug use to re-wrap the presents? (his slime)

What did he make out of the wooden sign that he used to deliver the presents? (a sleigh)

Who helped him? (the snails who acted liked reindeer) 

Next week we will be learning more about doubling in maths and how to write a letter in literacy.

If you would like to attend our school Christmas Carol Concert and Nativity Tableau then the tickets go on sale on Monday. They are £1 and the shows are the week before the end of term – Thursday 13th and Friday 14th at 2pm. 

It will be Green Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Tuesday. Please only bring in toys when it is your colour team’s turn for Show and Tell as they can easily get lost 😦

Please wear your PE kit on Monday and make sure all your belongings (school uniform, PE kit, book bag etc.) have your name in/on them. 

Homework is now due on Mondays.

Have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!
