Greys class have begun their preparations for Christmas this week by learning all about the meaning of Advent and making Advent wreaths. They then presented all the information they had gathered in Church on Wednesday morning as part of our Advent service.
In Maths the Year 1s have been using beaded linesto add 2,3,4,5 and 6 to 2 digit numbers. The Year 2s have been using number squares, beaded lines and number lines to add and subtract 11, 12, 13, 21, 22 and 23 to and from 2 digit numbers.
In Literacy we have been looking at Silly poems and practised learning to recite and act out In the Land of the Flibbertigibbets by John Foster. It was so much fun and quite a few of us have taken the poem home to learn over the weekend.
On Friday we then wrote our own silly poems using alliteration, rhyme and repetition.
We worked in groups pretending to be members of Henley Tourist Information office and presented our own information talks on Henley to the rest of the class. It was surprising to see how much we have learned about Henley over the last few weeks.
In French we have been learning about La Famille and know the French words for Mummy, Daddy, Grandpa, Grandma, brother and sister.
The preparations for the Christmas play continue and thank you to those who have been practising with your children, it has made a huge difference and I would be grateful if you could continue to do so over the next week.
Homework this weekend is to design and create a musical instrument. The children will then be writing about their creations and reflecting on what went well and what they would change to improve their model.

Have a lovely weekend!
