Reception have been very busy participating in National Nursery Rhyme Week, this week. They enjoyed focussing their learning around the rhymes ‘Doctor Foster Went to Gloucester’, ‘Down in the Jungle’ and ‘Two Little Dickie Birds’.
Nativity production preparations are now well underway and the children are already impressing us with their singing and acting. On Tuesday, the children nominated themselves for the roles that they would like to perform. The school provide the actual costumes, but we will be asking families to provide base layers soon. Please look out for a letter outlining what your child will need; it will be in the book bag later on in the week.
In RE this week, the children have been learning about Advent. They made Advent promises and recorded them on some special paper. These promises will be used as part of the whole class Advent calendar display above our prayer table.
The children also made some crowns to wear to the whole school assembly on Friday to celebrate the feast of Christ the King, the final Sunday of Ordinary Time before Advent begins. Fr Shaun was so impressed with them, that he has asked the children to wear them to mass on Sunday! It was also a very special assembly as the school celebrated Fr Shaun’s silver jubilee. We are very lucky to have such a special priest who continually helps us to grow closer to God.
Reception finished the week with a very special Act of Worship with their Year 6 learning partners . Thank you to Owen, Sofia, Matthew and Mia who led the class in prayer so beautifully.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Mrs Theo and Mrs Gymer
