What a wonderful week we have had!
We have continued to practice giving change in our class shop, please do encourage your children to practice over the weekend when you pop to the shop or out for the day. Money is a very tricky concept!
We have also began researching for our new term topic; 'The world of Wonder'. We have had so much fun investigating the wonders of the world and deciding what we would like to learn about over the next few weeks.
In PE we have decided to learn the skills of a new sport from a different country every two weeks. The first one chosen was Football which is commonly played in Africa. The children are looking forward to putting all of their newly learnt ball skills to the test in our mini tournament next week! They have also been researching the country Africa, trying to find a hidden wonder of the world there!
Forest school has resumed as normal, this week the children took part in a bug hunt. We are aiming to build a bug hotel for us to appreciate the wildlife around us and to make the bugs as safe and comfortable as we can on these cold days!
We will also be changing our role play area ready for our new topic 'Wonders of the World' soon! How exciting!!
Have a wonderful weekend.
As always, any questions feel free to pop and see me :)

These are some things you could do any time at home to help you learn....
Read your school book and anything else which interests you regularly!
Practise writing... You could write shopping lists, invitations, letters or even a diary so you can remember all the fun things you do on the weekends!
Practise spelling any words you find tricky and also red words...
Practice writing your numbers, counting, adding and subtracting. Number formation has been our focus this week to ensure the children are forming them correctly, any extra practice on this would be brilliant!
