Celebration Photographs

Dear Parents ,

I hope you and your child have had a wonderful Christmas. Our next topic in RE, will be Celebrating. We will be discussing different Celebrations your child may have taken part in, as well as exploring different Celebrations that happen at Church.

Please could you send in a named photograph of your child attending a Celebration. This could be a Wedding , Birthday , New Year party , Christmas or any other celebration they have attended. This will then be shared in the first RE lesson, with the rest of the class and then go into your child's Learning Journal.

Please could these photographs be in school by, Monday 8th January 2018.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the Christmas holiday and would like to wish you a Happy New Year.

Many Thanks

Miss Parmley

Just a quick note to say , it would be lovely if you could complete a Wow moment over the festive period, which your child can then share if the rest of the class on their return to school.

Many Thanks

Christmas Festivities

Dear Parents ,

We have had a busy last week in school. We enjoyed performing our play ' Christmas Counts' to the whole school , on Wednesday 13th December.

On Thursday the 14th December , we enjoyed having our Christmas Dinner with the other children in the school. On Friday the 15th December , we had our own class Christmas Party. We enjoyed having a party food lunch.

Finally our day ended with a visit from Father Christmas , who kindly gave us all present , which we were very excited about.
On Monday 18th December we took part in the Santa Fun Run , to help raise money for Charity. Despite the fact that its very cold , we managed to run twice around the field wearing our Santa Hats.We then enjoyed watching the Strictly XFactor talent show in the afternoon.

We would like to take this opportunity , to wish you all a peaceful and joyful Christmas and a Happy New Year and to say a huge thank you for the lovely gifts.

Merry Christmas
The Reception Team

Christmas Nativity

On Tuesday the 12th December Reception class performed their Christmas Nativity called "Christmas Counts." The children have worked very hard in class over the past few weeks rehearsing their lines and also the songs in the play.
They were sensible in finding their places on their stage and knowing when and where they should be throughout the course of the play.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the children , staff and of course parents , who were involved in supporting the children. They performed fantastically and we are very proud of them all.

Thank You for your support.

Autumn Continues and heading into Christmas preparation

We have been continuing to work hard in Reception over the past few weeks. Following on from our Autumn walk in class we have been learning how to mix colours to match the shades of some of the different leaves we found on our Autumn walk.

In Maths we have learnt about repeating patterns and making patterns that repeat 2 , 3 and some of us even 4 times. We also have learnt how we can use our bodies to make patterns. Also in Maths we have been learning about Positional Language. We worked in groups to give each other different positions we had to move to using a chair. We enjoyed this especially when Miss Parmley asked us to get under the chair.

In class, we are now working hard to prepare for our Christmas play " Christmas Counts ". Please help your child to practice their lines and also the songs that we are singing. The children are working hard and we have seen a great improvement over the course of the past few weeks. Please can you ensure that if your child has lines that these are sent into school everyday with them to enable us to rehearse.

If your child is a Narrator in the play could you please send a white top with no logos and black trousers or leggings for them to wear. The Narrators are Jemima , Niall , Liam , Jared and Millie K.

If your child is a Census Taker please could  you send in a white shirt and a tie and a pair of black trousers for them to wear. Please could these be in school no later than Monday 11th January 2017. The Census Takers are Matthew , William Hynes , Alexander W and Saskia.

All other costumes will be provided. Please speak to me if there any problems with finding outfits.

The Christmas Party food list will be outside the Reception Classroom from this afternoon , for you to sign up. I have tried to upload it onto this blog but at present it will not let me.  The Reception Christmas party is next Friday (15th December) and the children will not be having a school lunch on that day.

Finally , children who are in Yellow group will be showing on Friday. This can be linked to the theme of Christmas which is what we are going to be learning about over the next few weeks in class.

Thank you for your continued support.
