This week’s learning


Book Focus: Stickman by Julia Donaldson.

The children will be delighted to read this heart-warming, Christmas themed story about a stick family who await their father’s return. Phonics: Assisted blending to decode cvc words. Please continue to practise daily decoding.

MATHS: Sorting and comparing groups of objects. Key vocabulary: more, fewer, the same

Expressive Arts and Design: The children have been practising well for their musical performance to you on Tuesday. Also, this week they will be creating and making a range of Christmas related crafts in the creative areas of the classroom.



We have been learning about different kinds of celebrations. Can you talk to your adult at home and find out which celebrations are important in your family and what you do when you celebrate eg: birthdays, Christmas, etc. You could draw a picture or find pictures of different celebrations. Please use your phonic knowledge to write a label for your pictures


Please read with your child and write a comment in the yellow reading diary. Please keep both reading books and yellow diary in your child’s bookbag after each reading.

Please note that if reading books have been lost, they will need to be replaced

Festive Songs to practise

Dear Parents

Chelsea Class will be learning these songs to perform to you on Tuesday 10th December. Please help them to listen to and practise these songs during the week:

Six Little Snowflakes

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Father Christmas

(to the tune of Frere Jacques – see below)

Father Christmas, Father Christmas

He got stuck, he got stuck

Coming down the chimney,  Coming down the chimney

What bad luck, What bad luck


Father Christmas, Father Christmas

Dressed in red, dressed in red

Coming down the chimney, Coming down the chimney

Bumped his head,

‘Ouch!’ he said

We wish you a merry Christmas
