Children said they like to help decorate the tree, help with the Christmas dinner, tidy the house and fill stockings!

This week was World Nursery Rhyme Week! Reception have had a great time learning and singing a new nursery rhyme each day. Children made some stick puppets based on nursery rhyme characters for our drama session this afternoon and are very much looking forward to it!


Autumn 2 Week 3- Spanish Day!

Stars of the Week: Kayden and Charlotte

Yesterday, Reception celebrated Spanish Day with the rest of the school and had a wonderful time! Children were lucky enough to have not one but two Spanish readers come into class and read to them. Reception also took part in lots of Spanish singing and learnt some Spanish vocabulary. We learnt the names of some Spanish transport in the afternoon and children drew and labelled their own pictures. Well done on a great Spanish Day Reception!

Autumn 2 Week 2

This week Reception have completed some excellent maths work. We have been looking at finding 1 more and 1 less than a number and some children even moved onto finding 2 more!! Children used number lines to jump forwards and backwards so they could find their answer. Keep up the super maths!
