Winter Assembly Lines, songs and costumes

Hi everyone, 

Hope you had a lovely weekend!

Lines and Parts The children have been given their parts for the play today, which means that their lines, the poem and the songs need to be learnt at home for homework. Their lines are highlighted on the script and the song lyrics are at the back also. 

If you feel like your child is finding their lines a bit tricky, feel free to shorten it etc but just let me know. 

> Elves - If the elves could wear all green and black ( I am thinking elves like in the film Arthur Christmas)  that would be great, I will make badges for them. Also if they want they can wear elf hat or ears. ( If your child is not one of the characters below they are an elf :))
> We have a Santa and a Mrs Claus costume, 
> We have a cat costume
> for the dog I am thinking just face paint and black/white/brown - if anyone has ears that would be great, if not we can improvise. 
> Mice - Would it be possible to wear all one colour, brown or grey and again we will paint their faces?
> Fairy - We have had offers of lots of wings so if you have a dress you would like to wear we can give you the wings and wand. 
> Doll - Can wear a dress too, whatever colour you want is fine 
> Teddy Bear - Anyone have a costume/ onsie or ears? If not he can wear all brown, we can look for ears and use face paints. 
> Action hero - Any action hero will do, he is supposed to be a toy action figure so whatever you have should be fine. If you are stuck let us know. 
> Family: Mam, Dad, Brother, Sister can wear pajamas or normal clothes, we will make them look a little sick and disheveled on the day too.  

If anyone has spare things, let me know and we can minimize buying lots of new things. Likewise if anyone is stuck for anything please let me know and we can source it somewhere. 

They were all very excited today so let's keep that enthusiasm going until December 21st!

Thanks a million for all your co-operation ☺

(yellow, red, blue and green)Once your child gets a new book, please fill in the date they received the book and sign the sheet if you feel your child has completed the book to the best of their ability. The children will read their book on Monday and Tuesday night and I will listen to them on Wednesday to see if it is possible for them to move onto a new book for Wednesday and Thursday night. Once they have read all the books in that specific colour group, they will move on to the next group of books. When completing this at home, please focus on fluency, pacing, good expression and a good understanding of the bo…
