Red Friday Fanfare - 29th November

Hello Red Class,

We finished ‘Blackwell Bear Travels’ in style. You performed a fantastic Spanish song and dance in assembly and then you performed your retell throughout the morning. Today was a great day to meet new friends and to share your learning. We also enjoyed visiting different classrooms to learn about different parts of the world and to sample some delicious treats. A big ‘thank you’ to Mrs Davis-Green for reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’, in Spanish, a record-breaking 8 times. The children liked using a familiar story to learn new words and phrases and my Spanish vocabulary has grown dramatically.

Our new topic will be ‘Christmas’. As you know, we’ve already started the dances and songs for our Christmas play. Over the next few weeks, we will learn about the Christmas story and why Christmas is a special time for Christians.  

In your book bags, you will find a costume slip. The slip outlines your part and some items of clothing for your costume. In the past, parents have bought packs of tights and shared them between the children. Where a top is requested, you can send tops with logos into school and we will turn them inside out. Tops can also be bought in packs and shared.

If possible, please return your costume in a bag with the costume slip attached. If you need any help or information, please pop into school.

You’ll find a new phonics book in your book bag tonight with ‘y’, ‘z’ and ‘qu’. We also discovered ‘zz’ this week, where two letters make one sound e.g. buzz, jazz.  

I hope you have a super weekend my little stars. Rest, play and perhaps say a few words in Spanish. J

Mrs Webb, Mrs Reid, Mrs Cain and Miss Davis xxxx
