Friday 18th December
The highlight of our last week at school was a visit from Santa! The children were very excited to see him when he arrived in the playground during lunchtime on Tuesday. How fortunate it was that we had written our letters to him only that morning! Our class party on Wednesday added more excitement with games music and food for all. You should have received an email on the last day of term ( Thursday 17th) with a link for you to view our Christmas Sing Song. We hope you enjoy watching it; please remember this link should not be shared on any social media sites.
We return to school on Tuesday 4th January 2021. We will spend the first 4 days settling children back into school life and recapping in maths and phonics before beginning our new topic, Polar Regions, the following week. During the Christmas holidays, do keep reading to and with your children; remember you can access a vast range of e-books at the Oxford Owl and Rising Stars sites, using the links below.

Reception Christmas Holiday Maths Challenge
This term we have learnt a new number of the week each week, finishing with number 10. To consolidate our learning for this number, we would like to challenge the children to find a collection of ten items. It could be anything: pasta, sweets, buttons, bottle tops, coins, pebbles, sticks, magazine cut-outs, stickers etc. Can your child count out ten of whatever group of items they choose and put them in a clear freezer / sandwich bag, or stick them to a tens frame. Each child that enters the challenge will win a certificate, with a prize for the child that collects or arranges their ten items in the most imaginative way. We will make a display with all the items that the children collect, so please return to school by Friday 10th January 2021. Happy counting!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
The Reception Team
