Reception

 Memo

I

 

Dear Reception Class,

It was lovely to see you all back after the half term break. You immediately noticed the new layout of the classroom which has given us more space to work, particularly when using floor mats.

Having learnt a lot about the season of Autumn we will spend this half term learning about the festivals this time of the year. Your Halloween costumes were great last week! This week we will talk about Guy Fawkes and Remembrance Day and then we will start our Christmas activities learning about and writing the Christmas story. 

Tomorrow we will bake cookies in the afternoon ready for your Grandparents Celebration  of Age on Wednesday.

 

 

Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

 

Barbara
