RECEPTION

This Week: 
 
We have now begun to get into the Christmas spirit! The beginning of the week saw both Reception Classes take part in our Christmas Nativity and they were all totally brilliant! They acted, danced and sang their hearts out. The Reception team are all very proud of their performance this year.
The children also enjoyed watching the Year 2 dress rehearsal which was on Tuesday.
In literacy and RE the children have written and drawn pictures of the story of Christmas. They have been making and creating lots of Christmas arts and crafts within our creation stations. We have also started to make our Christmas cards.  In maths we have revisited number and played games counting and ordering to 20. Our two elf's have been behaving very badly this week and have been causing daily havoc in both classes!
 
Next week we will be continuing the fun and excitement with the lead up to Christmas! We will be using even more glitter to make different Christmas crafts. In literacy we will be writing our Christmas wish lists for Father Christmas. In maths we will be taking part in lots of Christmas maths activities, revisiting shapes (wrapping 3D presents), patterns and number. The children will also be cooking Christmas biscuits .
