Week Beginning: 13th December 2021


This week in nursery we shall be continuing with our story topic and looking at different ways over the festive period that we show kindness to each other. 

Wednesday is our Arts and Crafts and Christmas jumper day and Thursday is the children’s Christmas party. 

Please see notice board outside nursery gate for details.


In Reception this week the children will be looking at the Christmas story. They will be making Christmas cards and having a class party on the afternoon of Thursday 16th December. Please DO NOT send in any food for the party - food will be provided. They do NOT need to bring a change of clothes as we will be staying in our uniform.  

In Maths, we will be playing Christmas games and practising all of the number skills that we have learnt this term.


In English, we are going to design our favourite toy and describe it using main clause sentences. As our Science topic was all about materials, we are going to include the properties of materials in our writing too.

In Maths, we are going to revisit previous areas, such as adding, subtracting and grouping objects into 2s.

A gentle reminder, school closes early on Friday 17th December at 1:15pm.
