 The Three Billy Goats Gruff.

As a Fantastic finish to our topic, we invited Rainbow Theatre in to do a performance of Four Famous Fairy Tales. This included The Three Billy Goats Gruff so we were able to join in as we know the story really well!

                    

 After Christmas we will be starting our new topic 'All Creatures Great and Small.' 

We are focusing on the stories of 'Dear Zoo' and 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar.'

Learning Together Days

Phonics

We hosted our first Learning Together Day this term. We invited Reception parents into school on a Friday morning to join us in a phonics lesson. With our grown ups we learnt a new sound and then had some time to explore some phonics activities. The children loved having their grown ups in school with them for a session and the parents found it informative too.

       

 

We are working hard on our Growth Mindset. We know that we need to exercise and work our brains. Tackling something hard is a good workout for our brains and helps to make them stronger.

The more we practice the better we get. It doesn't matter if we make mistakes because the more we make, the more we learn from them.

 We have been 'have a go' monkeys - making sure we always have a go, and don't give up!

                                                            

        Our Christmas Nativity 'A Miracle in Town' was fantastic! The children were brilliant, performing loudly and clearly and they all thoroughly enjoyed sharing their hard work with their family and friends.
