This week in RE, Reception have been learning all about Jesus the healer. We read the story of how Jesus healed the paralyzed man and a man who could not see, discussing the miracle which had taken place! Reception then passed around the class teddy, who was also sick, and we all spoke about people who help us when aren’t feeling well. Reception then prayed for other children who are sick and need God’s help.
This week Reception have been celebrating Chinese New Year! Children have enjoyed learning about the history of this festival and made some lovely lanterns and Chinese Dragon masks. Some children also produced some wonderful writing on how different people celebrate Chinese New Year with their families.
Reception have been working hard on their teen numbers this week. In groups, children worked together to order their teens numbers from smallest to largest, write them correctly and draw a quantity to match the number! Super maths work Reception!

Thank you to everyone who came along to support Reception and Nursery at the Nativity yesterday. The children did such a wonderful job and they all made myself and Sara very proud! Thank you for your continuous support and helping your child to learn their lines and the songs- it all paid off! Here are some photos from the morning and some from our dress rehearsal, enjoy!

This week in RE, we were thinking about the different ways which we prepare for Christmas with our families. Reception made some wonderful contributions to our discussion and we put it all in a Christmas basket in the middle of the carpet. Children said they like to help decorate the tree, help with the Christmas dinner, tidy the house and fill stockings!
