Newsletter December 2015

Parents in Touch

Dear [NAME]

This is a busy month for parents so we have included worksheets below which will keep your child occupied and hopefully give you time to attend to other things. Children love this time of the year so we hope that you all have a peaceful and happy time together.

English There are worksheets here which are based on traditions and events for all age groups. My children enjoyed 'A Santa story' as well as the Fun poems. It is interesting to learn about Christmas Traditions in other countries. 
Maths I hope you enjoy these worksheets and can solve the Puzzling problems. My December calendar might be useful both in school and at home. It is always helpful to revise tables so try this paper together.
Children in Foundation Stage do get excited about Christmas and I have read 'A new dog for Christmas' to many children. Use the Words and pictures worksheet together and see who finishes first.
Spelling and Phonics These worksheets have a Christmas theme but will certainly reinforce learning of spellings and phonics.
Science Children love learning about animals and their natural habitats. The worksheet topic may be messy but it is great fun - try it together.
Topics I love the story about 'New hats for Statues' and 'Alice in Wonderland' is a Christmas favourite.
Take a look at our super Giveaways for this month. The QI puzzles and The Snowman 3D puzzle will intrigue everyone. There's family fun with Rattle Me Bones and Ticket to Ride Europe. Sensory Miffy is a cute cuddly toy. Readers will enjoy great story telling with The Person Controller and An Eagle in the Snow; they can relax with our colouring books and learn with the Activity Set. For younger readers, there's Penguin's Big Adventure and A Pirate's Twelve Days of Christmas. Get your entries in early as some close before the end of the month.

Books  For lots more ideas on reading and helping your child, take a look at our Best new books pages. We have also included some toys this month, to help with present buying. Finally, we have included some games for you to enjoy as a family during the festive season - a super way to enjoy time together.
