Chestnut Class Newsletter
Friday 8th November
This week we have continued our Celebrations topic by learning about fireworks and bonfire night. We have also been reading the story ‘Owl Babies’ and have done lots of owl themed activities.
We have learnt the sounds ff, ll, ss and learnt the rule that these digraph sounds come in the middle, or at the end of a word but never at the beginning of a word. Words you can read and write to practise these sounds are: huff, puff, fill, tell, well, bell, kiss, miss, mess.
In maths we have been comparing sets of objects and using the language more, less, fewer, and the same as, to compare how many objects are in a set.
Please remember that children need to stop and greet the teachers as they arrive in the morning so that we know that they are here. If we are busy, then they may need to stop and wait for a minute.
We have a large number of unnamed items of clothing in the classroom. If you are missing anything then please come and have a look. If you take any uniform from the uniform exchange, then please remember to label it with your child’s name. Anything that is still in the classroom by next Friday will be washed and then put back into the uniform exchange.
