Dear Reception Class,
With three weeks left of this term, we will be preparing for Mother’s Day celebration and Easter celebration. Start thinking about those Easter bonnets for the parade around the church!
Please remind your mum to return the Mother’s Day invitation, if she hasn’t already. I need to take a photo of each of you with your mum. Please help me remember when they drop you off or pick up.
We will share some information for St Patrick’s Day in our assembly on Monday and do remind your parents that they are invited to observe your swimming lesson this week. Also remember that the Young Shakespeare Company, will be coming to perform Hamlet for us on Monday afternoon. What a busy day we will have!
We will find time this week to paint the planets you made, now that they are finally dry! Be thinking about which colours you will need to choose for your planet. Our solar system models in the class will help you to decide.
We won’t be going on a Spring walk this Friday as stated on the calendar as I must leave at lunchtime and I certainly don’t want to miss it! We will choose another day before the end of term. Wendy will cover the science lesson with you in my absence.
See you all tomorrow.
