No official homework - just keep working on those lines for the Nativity production!
Homework this week is formed of three mini tasks:
Decorate the front of the Christmas card that we will be placing inside our Christmas shoebox for the homeless. Please use colouring pencils to decorate the front (remember your best colouring!) and please do not write the message inside as we will do this part of the task in class.
Keep working on your lines for our Nativity play, most of us now know our lines off by heart but need to work on using a much louder voice!
Think about joining in the PTA’s Bauble competition by getting creative and designing a FUN homemade decoration for the Christmas tree.
Friday 24th November
Please continue to work on your lines for our production of Midwife Crisis.
Most of you have now learnt your lines off by heart so the next step is to work on voice projection (making sure you speak loudly and clearly!) When working on your lines ask an adult to reads the line that come before yours so that you get used to knowing when to come in and speak!

Speaking and listening task: Instead of completing a written based activity in the learning journals, this week we would like the children to spend time learning their line(s) off by heart and then practise delivering them for the Christmas play.

Could all Hedgehogs please spend some time reading their new reading book over the weekend and if their are any problems/difficulties could this be noted in the children's contact book.
In year 1/2 there is a real focus on children's understanding/comprehension of the text they are reading it is not just about children being able to read the words. For additional guidance on this please see my letter that has also been sent home today in book bags, this letter can also be found in the newsletter section of our Hedgehogs page.
