Reception Week Beginning 19.10.20

This week, Reception joined the rest of the school in celebrating One World Week. Sadly, we couldn’t visit Italy, our chosen country, so we brought Italy to us!

The children learnt that Italy is actually shaped like a boot and that Rome is the capital city. They also found out about Pope Francis and St Peter’s Basilica. They learnt about the Colosseum and the water ways of Venice and even constructed their own gondolas from different materials.  They also made The Leaning Tower of Pisa from clay. The most popular activity by far however, was making props for the Italian restaurant and using them in imaginary role play. The service and food in the restaurant was fantastic!

Today, Reception participated in a special class Harvest Festival act of worship. Thank you for your generous donations.

Wishing you all a well deserved break,

The Reception Team
