In English this week the children have been practicing their story telling skills using the story of Elves and the Shoemaker. We have been trying to use words and actions to tell the story as a whole class. The children have also been performing the story in small groups to the class. They have all worked really hard and we have enjoyed watching the performances of each of the groups. We have further looked at the Nativity story.
In Maths we have continued to explore the addition fact families for numbers within 10. We are also practicing number bonds to 10 and representing them using concrete resources, part – whole models and number sentences. Today we have looked at what subtraction is and how we can count backward to subtract.
We have also been rehearsing for our Christmas play. If you would like any help with providing the costumes, please let us know.
