Wow! I can't believe we have made it to Christmas already! The children have been so so busy and definitely deserve a rest.
In RE the children have been listening to the story of The Nativity, they have created their own version of the stable scene with lolly sticks.
We have been practicing our Phase 2 sounds and high frequency words most days with games, songs and during Learning Through Play. The children have been using their phonics to write letters to Santa, Christmas Cards and writing about Christmas pictures.
In Maths we have been consolidating all our learning with missing number activities, puzzles and different shape activities during 'Learning through play'.
The children performed their Nativity last week, they worked incredibly hard and were superstars! Thank you for your support with helping them learn lines. Thank you for all the kind comments, we are pleased you enjoyed it. We ended last week with a marble treat too as the children worked hard to fill their jar.
This week the children have enjoyed a wonderful Christmas lunch, the crackers and music made it extra special for them in these unusual circumstances. They have had lots of different Christmas activities too; there has been colouring and singing, they have made decorations and had a great party with a special visitor too! They also took part in the Santa fun run which the children particularly enjoyed.
Please do post a WOW moment on Tapestry during the Christmas holidays. We would like to hear all about your Christmas celebrations.
Thank you so much to all the parents for our cards, gifts and kind words, not just this week but across the term. You have kept us all going!
From everyone in the Reception team, we wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
The Reception team.
