Autumn 2 Week 7

Another busy week in Reception Class. This week we have been reading and retelling the Christmas Story. The children acted out the story, made angels and stables, used the small world objects to retell the story and made books by sequencing pictures and adding words. On  Friday afternoon, we had a shepherds dinner in candle light. We ate dates, grapes and bread.

We decorated the classroom with angels, snowflakes and lots more in preparation for our Christmas Lunch and our party on Monday. Then we made hats to wear to our Christmas Lunch, we had a lovely lunch together in the class.

In Maths, we have been learning to use and follow prepositional language to describe where something is. We went on a shape hunt, we named the shape and described where we found it.

Outside, we have had Santa’s workshop and the children have been wrapping and labelling presents. They have been busy elves, helping Santa to get ready for Christmas.


The children made Christmas cards for their Year 6 reading partners and did wonderful writing inside their cards.

The children audioned for Pope Paul’s Got Talent. It was very difficult to choose only two acts! Well done to all that took part.

Please could you send in boxes of tissues as we are running out.

Remember to wear party clothes on Monday.

Have a wonderful weekend.
