Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

RECEPTION

This week our focus story has been the 'Little red hen'.  The children have made story maps and thought of their own characters which could be in the story.  They have enjoyed exploring and role playing with flour and have loved getting very messy with this! The children have consolidated their learning of number bonds to 10 and money by having a farm shop with real fruit and vegetables! We hoped you enjoyed looking at all the wonderful things your children do in school on 'share our learning day' it was great to see so many parents. We enjoyed our visit to Wimbledon Library and each child was given a library ticket and chose a book to take home. (library cards were all put in the inside pocket of the children's book bags). Thank you to all the parents who came and helped on the library visit.  The children enjoyed wearing hats on our 'hats off to kindness' day  and loved getting dressed in their favourite character to end our topic on fairy tales. They all looked fantastic! 
 
After half term our topic will be 'looking after our world' we will be brainstorming different ways to look after our world and our school 'eco warriors' will be visiting to talk to the children and the important role they have in school. During the first week  we will also be thinking about rubbish, sorting and recycling and the reasons why we do this.  (Please bring in different types of recycling for the children to sort.)
 
During the first week back the children will also be taking part in balance bike training Tuesday 26th - Thursday 28th February.
 
We hope you all have a restful half term and look forward to seeing all the things you get up to in the holidays.  Please don't forget to add some pictures to your holiday scrap books!
 
See you all after half term!
