Well, the week has certainly flown by and next week we are in our final week of our theme on Leafman to be then replaced with Stickman! As you know, there is a very special character in 'Stickman' so we didn't want to get ahead of ourselves and the children to peak too soon with their excitement. Next week is also our last Forest School for the year. We will still see our nursery friends for the Christmas meal and hopefully they will pop in to see us for Christmas drinks and nibbles and gift giving.

Just to let you know that PE day is a Friday. We usually go down to the Old School for this. I was very pleased that when we did PE last all the children had their kit. It is much better to leave it in school and the same goes for forest school clothes. We often go out as and when we can.

In maths this week, children have been focussing on addition of 2 single digit numbers. This concept does take a bit of time so we will do this until Christmas. In phonics this week we have learnt the sounds, 'j', 'sh' and 'r'. I also pleased to say that all the children have started blending their sounds and we even did this in front of Mrs McLoughlin and Luna! Luna was so impressed she gave us a present and a special doggy sticker. I've heard these are very rare indeed!

Don't forget arts and crafts afternoon on Friday 30th November. Please come along and make something lovely and Christmassy with your child. If they have older siblings, they can all come into Hedgehogs class so you don't have to split yourself between different classes.

Have a good weekend.
