Reception News


It's been a busy time in Reception as usual. Children are leaning about SPACE, which is very topical with Tim Peake having done his first and Britain's first space walk. It was great to be able to watch some of this together with the whole school in the hall. This has led to some wonderful writing - authors writing fact books at 4 and 5 years old is exciting.

To have had a little snow has made our WINTER topic more engaging. We talked last week about the type of clothes we wear in this chilly season. Why don't you go for a walk to spot holly trees? We have been studying these and noticing how prickly they are.

Each Wednesday this term, we are going to go on an ADVENTURE WALK. The children enjoyed trudging through the mud and splashing in the puddles last week. Thankfully they had their wellingtons on!

It has been good to catch up with lots of you about your child's progress and their next steps. Do remember to make an appointment.

Hopefully we shall soon move back into our classroom. The installation of new toilets is going well. This afternoon they have levelled the floors. If any of you have any time to help me flick a duster round before we can get back into our room. Come and let me know. We can do the dreaded thing and put DVD on to occupy the children while we work. I will bake a cake!
