Welcome back to all Reception children and their parents. The children have been very excited to tell us about their Christmas holiday. We’ve heard about fabulous trips abroad, lovely family days out and how generous Santa has been. They painted lovely pictures to match their stories which will be up on display soon. The children also attempted to write their first news in their Busy Books this week. There was some fantastic writing and good sentences! The children have made a good adjustment splitting into their new RWI groups.

We’ve also introduced our topic for this half-term, Transport, through reading some themed stories to the children. We’ve revisited our numbers to 20 this week   (and beyond for some) carefully counting objects and writing our numbers whilst focussing on their formation and direction.

Can parents please ensure that their children have their black coats in school and wear the appropriate PE kit (tracksuit bottoms not shorts and skirts) as it is now far too cold to go without these. School shoes must be worn each morning on the non PE kit days.
