Reception have had another wonderful week in their new class and it’s fair to say that the children are now very settled and confident in their new learning environment!
This week, Reception have been thinking about themselves and how they are all special and unique. As part of this focus, the children all painted a picture of themselves which have been proudly displayed in the Reception classroom. We have some very talented artists in our class it seems!
Reception class took advantage of the beautiful weather at the beginning of the week and really enjoyed playing with the sports equipment and exploring the space on the school field. We are so blessed to have such wonderful school grounds to take advantage of!
Some of the children have also taken part in some gardening this week. Every class in the school has a school flower bed that they have responsibility for. Sadly, the Reception bed is looking a little sorry for itself at the moment. Over the past few weeks, the children from other classes have been bringing in bulbs and bedding plants from home and brightening up their flower beds and we wondered if our children could do the same? Any donation however small would be gratefully received! Thank you!
Today, alongside the rest of the school, the class took part in a special mass to celebrate the start of the new school year and welcome them into the Pope Paul School community. The children were all absolutely fantastic, demonstrating incredible focus and reverence. All the adults in the school were very proud of them!
This afternoon, a very special occasion took place- the children met their Year 6 reading partners. This is a very important tradition at Pope Paul School dating back years and is an important part of the settling in process. The relationship formed and nurtured with their partner during their Reception year is very special and one your child will never forget! Please see the Year 6 blog for photographs.
Thank you to the families who have already sent in a family photo(s). If you haven’t yet, please can you send it in by Tuesday morning, as we will be using them in our RE lesson. Thank you!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend,
The Reception Team
