The Christmas Story

Mrs Moreton from Watford Schools Trust visited Reception this morning to share the story of Christmas. She brought some amazing knitted characters and a cardboard box which she used to recreate the nativity scene. The children enjoyed singing new songs and joining in with the story.

People who help us! 

As part of our People who help us topic, Freddie’s Mummy kindly agreed to talk to Reception about her job in a hospital. The children enjoyed listening to a special story about Teddy’s operation, dressing up in scrubs and a doctor’s coat and learning about objects from hospital. Freddie’s Mummy kindly donated the resources to Reception which the children have continued to enjoy exploring in the Role Play Area. 

Library visit

Reception had a very enjoyable visit to the library this morning. They were very well behaved and made us extremely proud. A huge thank you to the parent helpers and all of you who volunteered. All the children have a fantastic book to share at home – happy reading over half term. 

On Tuesday Ash class enjoyed an Autumn walk around the school grounds. They noticed the different coloured leaves and talked about the objects they found. They were particularly fascinated by the owl box in the oak tree.
