If you would like to help your son learn the words for Away in a Manger you can use the link below. This is the music we have been using in class
Also, we have been learning about “one more” in school today. Any opportunity to reinforce this as home would be great! The boys have been rolling dice and calculating “one more”. They have also been using the 100 square to jump on “one more” starting at different numbers. This can be extended to “two or three more”.
This year at Lochinver we are trying something new. Instead of writing Christmas cards to individual boys we are encouraging a combined project with the rest of Pre Prep.
Please could we ask you to make one small card or decoration with a general message to the whole class written on it. Your son will then be able to put his card / decoration on the Pre Prep “Christmas Giving Tree” for all the boys to see.
This will be a more environmentally friendly project; especially if you make your card or decoration from recycled materials!
We are suggesting that the money saved by not buying individual Christmas cards could be donated to charity.
Have fun making your contribution and I look forward to seeing the “Christmas Giving Tree” in the Pre Prep foyer very soon!
