Elves' Workshop, rhymes and rehearsals!

21st November 2017

The Elves’ Christmas Workshop is open for business, and is already a hive of activity.  The children are busy wrapping gifts, writing lists and sending Christmas cards!  We’ve also been practising our Christmas nativity play, ‘The Tiniest, Shiniest Star’ – the children have really impressed us once again with their patience, lovely singing and ability to remember their lines (already!).  The nativity will be performed twice on Tuesday 12th December, in school, at 10am and 6pm.  Further details will soon follow, and if your child has a speaking part then lines will shortly be sent home for you to practise with them.  (Please bear in mind that the children were asked whether or not they wanted a speaking part).  We’ve been learning all about rhyming words, and playing rhyme bingo.  The children have also been learning about both 2D and 3D shapes – ask your child how many sides a hexagon has, and see if they can tell you what a sphere looks like!  PE was once again a huge success – we did mat work in the hall, and the children impressed us with their rolling and balancing skills.  Getting changed into PE kits went really smoothly (full kit this week – thank you to all those parents who have sent in named PE kits), but getting dressed again was a bit trickier….!  Please could you label shirts and pinafores, even ties if possible, since all uniform looks the same – initials in the labels is sufficient!  Keep practising getting dressed with your child, since these self-help skills are crucial.  We do of course assist with top buttons and ties, but would like the children to be able to largely dress independently.  Friday was Celebration Assembly, and the children sat beautifully once again – we really are proud of them!  Finally, thank you all for your generous donations to Children in Need, it is much appreciated.
