Christmas is coming to Reception!

The children have been making their advent preparations this week and have shared their advent wishes and promises.

They have enjoyed making decorations for their classrooms and looking out for the mischievous Elves that keep popping up around the school.

Please read this weeks newsletter for important dates. This is attached below.

Have a lovely weekend and wrap up warm!

Another busy week in Reception has flown by. The children have loved listening to Owl Babies and have been inspired to make some beautiful owl collages this week.

Please remember to send in your child's costume for our production if you have not already done so.

Below is this week's newsletter with some more early years news.

Have a lovely weekend!

Newsletter 27th November

We have had another busy week in Reception and are starting to prepare for Advent and Christmas. We hope you have received your letter detailing your child's part in the production. Please send your costume clearly named into your class by Friday 27th November.

Hot lunches resume on Monday so please check the menu with your child for their choices.

Have a lovely weekend  everyone!

Please find this week's newsletter attached below.

Well done to all those children who had their flu immunisations today. They were extremely brave and sensible.

We have really enjoyed reading " Going on a bear hunt " this week and have made our own story walls, scary bears and even made up our own versions of the story, going on Tiger, Dinosaur and even Rhino hunts!

The children have also impressed us with their knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes and made some amazing models .

We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Newsletter 13th November

Please find this week's Reception Newsletter attached below.

The children have returned from their half term break full of energy and ready to learn which is fantastic.

They approached their first P.E lesson with enthusiasm and noticed how hard their bodies worked by noticing how sweaty they felt and how fast their hearts were beating!

They thoroughly enjoyed finding all about Bonfire night and loved having their own sparklers, which they used carefully and followed our safety rules correctly.

Phonics/spellings home learning was sent home today and needs to be returned by next Friday so we can prepare your new home learning activities.

 Have a happy weekend and stay safe.
