Welcome back!

Hopefully you have had a restful half term break and are ready for a busy run up to Christmas!
The children have brought home their scripts to learn for this years nativity performance. Please help your child to learn their lines, encouraging them to use lots of expression. Please also ensure that your child brings their script in to school every day in order for us to practise.

Homework this week consists of learning their lines as well as having a look at Times Tables Rock Stars. Your child will be given a copy of their username and password tomorrow. I have managed to set the times tables that they are required to learn so hopefully they shouldn't be given questions for the harder times tables. Please let me know on Monday if there are any issues with this.

I will send home learning books next week with this half term's homework web. Please remember to date each week to show the piece of homework that your child has completed. I have seen some wonderful pieces of homework over the past few weeks and have been very impressed with the amount of effort that has gone in to them.

As the weather turns colder this half term, your child will require warm clothing such as jogging bottoms and a jumper to wear for outdoor PE lessons. Please make sure these are clearly labelled with your child's name.

Next week, I will be sending out a letter with information about any costume items your child might need for the nativity. I will also be asking for any volunteers to support us in 'refreshing' some of our nativity costumes that we have in school. Some of them (particularly the angel costumes) are beginning to look a little worn. If anyone is willing to lend a hand with sewing or providing some bits of material to make into costumes, then it would be very much appreciated.

Have a lovely weekend!
