As posted earlier this term 😉
‘Wow we are nearly at the end of a fantastic year of growing, playing and learning together and we’d like to celebrate with a party. So… on Tuesday 13th December (last week of term) we’d like to have a party with Mrs.Graham’s class. The children can dress up in their favourite Christmas clothes. Mrs. Graham’s class will bring the sweets and Mrs. Crockford’s class will bring the savoury. We can heat things up in the oven at school if needed.’

It’s also that time of year when the library is doing the BIG stocktake. We need to start returning our resources to the library ( today we borrowed but will keep the books at school and I will keep library bags ready to pass onto next years teacher) This also includes our readers. Therefore, we will not be bringing readers home from school after the end of this week.
All library books and readers need to be returned. Look EVERYWHERE that books like to hide. Under beds, in toy boxes, back of the car, under the lounge, on your book shelves etc… if our class has 100% return of our books, we all get a surprise from Mrs. James but only if everyone returns their books. Don’t worry, we won’t stop reading! We will still be reading and writing in our classroom every day.
Every year I find that children want to give out Christmas cards. Most bring class sets, some just do a few, but there is always someone who is left out and all they really seem to be interested in is the candy cane attached to the card so… I have a plan …
In class, during writing we are going to talk about making cards for our friends then we will all make a very special Christmas card. Each person will make a card and every class mate will sign each card, then every child will have one card from every one, you won’t have to help your child write out a class set of cards (that’s 26 by the way), your child won’t come home with 26 cards and 26 candy canes and I won’t have to manage 676 cards, candy canes, tears and rubbish of envelopes and cards they leave on the ground! I have done this for the last couple of yearsr and found it to be very successful. The children end up with 1 very special keepsake signed by every single person from their reception year. If your family chooses to give out a class set of cards you will need to catch children outside 🙂
We truly think you for your support in this.

On Thursday 15th of September our class is attending a Teddy Bears Hospital workshop at school – this is designed to reduce children’s anxiety about visiting hospitals and health professionals and to encourage a healthy life style. They have asked us to get the children to bring along a small stuffed toy so it is as if they are taking their toy to the hospital.
Also just to let you know that I talked to the class this afternoon to let them know that I will be away for the last 3 weeks of term because I have to have a little visit to the hospital. Mrs Bradley will be in on Monday Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Ms Anna Raff will be in for Thursdays and Fridays.
I will see you again all fit and healthy for term 4.
