Reception News Week 5 WB 29.11.21
The children were very excited when they came into school this Wednesday as the whole school had been transformed into a magical Christmas wonderland. They were also surprised to find a special present in each classroom. They were very intrigued as to what was inside and enjoyed sharing fantastic ideas on what it may be and where it came from. The most popular idea was that it was delivered by Santa or the Elves! The children were thrilled to find their own classroom elf inside and an important letter with a task to do. In our phonics lessons, we used our blending skills to write different names for the elf before having a class vote to choose their favourite. We also took the opportunity to explore the celebration of Hanukah, identifying special foods, games and traditions that Jewish families enjoy at this time of year.
