Reception Autumn Term Autumn Term Week 8

Reception have had a very exciting end to their first half term participating in One World Week with the rest of the school.

In class, the children have been learning about Italy. On Monday, they worked hard to create props for the new Italian restaurant. They then had lots of fun role playing being waiters, chefs, customers and front of house staff.

On Tuesday, Leon from Year 3 came to teach us some Italian songs and told us all about the village that his family come from in Italy. The children then made some Italian lemonade- It was delicious!

On Wednesday, Reception learnt about Pope Francis and the Vatican City. They also learnt about different landmarks in Italy, such as the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Venice and Milan. They enjoyed making their own models of the Leaning Tower of Pisa from clay and large scale gondolas from the large construction!

On Thursday the children learnt about pizzas and went on to make their own. They also had another visitor, Mrs Bruno, who read them a story in Italian about farm animals and then taught them how to count to ten and say hello, goodbye and thank you in Italian.

It was wonderful to see so many of you at our learning celebration this morning. Thank you for your continued support!

Wishing you all a lovely and restful half term break,

Mrs Theo and Mrs Gymer

    Thank you so much Mrs Theo and Mrs Gymer for such wonderful experiences you are providing for the children in reception. The assembly this morning exemplified the emphasis the school places on character education and the development of a sense of community. The weekly updates on the blog have been very useful for us to start conversations at home and to support Gabriella’s learning beyond school. We hope you both and all the staff at Pope Paul have a well deserved break.
