This week we continued with our shared text ‘How Winston Delivered Christmas’ This week we completed a sequencing task as well as a story hand where we had to identify the main characters in the story so far.
We redrafted our Santa Letter for our Christmas Writing which will be sent home before the holidays. We are very pleased with how our booklet is coming along.

In Numeracy on Wednesday and Friday we completed some Christmas Maths. We learned about co-ordinates and how to read these and then find them on a grid. We then completed some Christmas examples. We found a present and a Santa Claus.
