Autumn 2 Week 6

The highlight of our week was our Christmas Nativity! ‘The Sleepy Shepherd’ We were very proud of how the children sang, performed and spoke clearly. We were amazed by the confidence of the children performing on both days for the school and the parents. The joy on the children’s faces showed their enjoyment and how proud they were of themselves made it special. Thank you to the parents for your support.


This week we learnt about the second week of Advent. We lit the second purple candle on the Advent wreath. The second candle represents peace. We talked about times when we are peaceful and what we like to do to find peace. We also thought about how we want peace in the world and what we can do to help this. We read the story Peace at Last and the children acted out the story, drew pictures and wrote captions about the places daddy bear tried to find some peace. The children sorted activities that they do at night and day and painted pictures of the night.

In Maths, we have been learning about shapes and their properties. The children have learnt about circles, triangles, squares and rectangles. They have been describing the shapes by counting their corners and their sides. We have been making patterns and pictures with shapes, printing with shapes, using natural materials to make shapes and cutting shapes out.

In our Ten Ten lesson, the children were learning about different body parts and how we should look after them.

Next week the children will be auditioning for Pope Paul Got Talent. Two acts will be chosen for the final on Tuesday 19th December. If your child has a talent they would like to show – singing, dancing or anything else, they can show the class next Friday. Children will get time to practise group acts during the week.

Have a wonderful weekend.
