Welcome back everyone. It is time to knuckle down and work hard. I've heard the big man is coming soon, you better watch out (Santa may even come into school.) I'm so excited about the Christmas half term, it is definitely my favourite time of year. The children will get very tired towards then end of the term, we have so much going on! Our topic is 'how do we use colour to celebrate' so expect a bit of paint every now and then on your child's jumper/cardigan. Now are you ready for our Christmas performance? The children will bring their lines home shortly and will be constantly singing the songs for the performance, let's get that cup a tea in now while it's quiet. 

IT'S CHRISSSTMASSS (soon.)

Things to Remember

 

PE Day for Mr Johnson's class is Friday-please ensure children have their P.E kits in school. We may also have additional P.E sessions during the week so P.E kits need to be in school all week. We will send P.E kits home at the end of each half term and they need to be returned at the beginning of the following half term.

 

Snack money is 50p per week. Children can either bring it weekly (on a Monday) or half termly. We use the money to buy fresh fruit and vegetables which the children can have with their milk during classroom snack time each day. We also bake with the children on a regular basis and the snack money provided helps to buy the ingredients.

 

 

Book bags-please ensure that your child's book bag is in school everyday with their school reading book and reading record.

 

Water bottles-please ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school everyday.
