Let’s find out what our amazing children have been up to this week:
This week in Nursery we are getting very excited about performing our concert to you all and we have been practising on the new big stage. We have been getting creative making our hats for the Christmas party and painted our hands to make a Christmas tree prints for our cards. In maths this week we have been counting Santa's presents and recording how many he has by using our fingers or making marks on paper to represent number. We have also been writing about our favourite character from the story 'First Nativity' and drawing pictures.
The boys and girls in Dalmatians have amazed their teachers once more with their mathematical skills. This week the children focused on recording their own subtraction problems through drawing and forming numerals. As Christmas is fast approaching Reception took the time to read a Nativity Story to learn about why Christians celebrate Christmas. After listening to the story, the children were very grown up talking about what they had heard and demonstrated brilliant understanding of the story. This was reflected in their written recount of the story. Finally, the children have worked so hard at perfecting their concert this week. They got to perform to an audience, as Nursery came to watch them in a dress rehearsal. All of the Dalmatians cannot wait to show their grown-ups the concert and make them proud!
In Year 1 this week, the children have been compiling a wish list of gifts in preparation for the Christmas festivities. The children have used some astounding adjectives that describe the various toys on their lists so that Santa’s elves know exactly what they need to be making in their workshop! In Maths, the children have been exploring 2D shapes and comparing them according to the number of sides and corners they have.
This week has flown by! The children in year 2 have been working extremely hard designing and writing about their own superhero this week in English. Using sentence openers, adjectives and conjunctions the children wrote imaginative pieces to describe how their creations saved the day after a range of problems were given to them. In Maths, the children worked hard to practice their ten times tables and even tricky word problems. They learnt to read the word problems carefully, highlighting key words in the questions to make sure they knew exactly what was being asked of them. They really impressed their teachers! In Topic this week, the children have learnt lots! They learnt about why Queen Victoria was important after both classes received emails about her life. The children also used their artistic skills to design a Christmas cake and discussed how they to make them by looking at a set of instructions. What another great week we have had! Good job Incredibles!
This week has also seen the children continue to work extremely hard on their Christmas concerts. The children made us all very proud in their dress rehearsals this week. You are in for a treat when you come to watch next week as they have all been absolutely amazing! The Christmas fair was another amazing event at Hamilton this week. It was lovely to see so many children and family members getting into the festive spirit. As always, thank you for your continued support with such special events.
We hope you all enjoy a lovely weekend.
Very best wishes,
