Ash End Farm

Reception had a great day despite the weather!  We helped to feed the animals, listened to the Nativity story and met Father Christmas.

 

Thank you to all our helpers who helped to make the day special.  Here are some photographs of our day, I apologise for the amount but it was hard to choose what to include.

Thank you!

Reception would like to say a big thank you to all the parents who provided cardboard to help us make the Gingerbread house in our class.  The children have had great fun decorating and playing in it.

Busy two weeks in Reception!

Over the last two weeks the reception children have been working really hard and have learnt so much.  We have been looking at different faiths and how they celebrate.   We found out about a Hindu festival and a Jewish festival.  We made diva lamps for Diwali and Hanukkiah candle holders.  We found out about Guy Fawkes and why we have fireworks and also why we have Remembrance Day and poppies.  We made a lovely poppy display to help us remember.  This week we have been looking at road safety and thinking about how we can help others.  We had a sponsored bike ride and cake sale to raise money for Brake.   Here are some photographs of our activities.

 

Thank you

Thank you very much for your generous donations to our Cafod day.  We had lots of money and bags of food to be donated to those in need.  

Today we spent some time with our prayer friends and the children enjoyed.  We are looking forward to the Reception Welcome Mass on Sunday at 9.30 am and practised our song again.  We hope to see you there.

 

Prayer Friends

One of the responsibilities that comes with being Year 6 is becoming a prayer friend to a child in Reception. Both classes were so excited to meet this week and find out who their prayer is. We then shared in our first of many collective worships to begin our journey through faith together.

Busy week ahead

This week we will be looking at the phonemes g,o,c,k.  We are having photographs taken on Thursday and wearing green for Cafod on Friday.  A donations of £1 or a tin of food would be appreciated.

This week we were looking at how to move around the space in the hall with Miss Jade.

We do a warm up when we say hello and move our hands and feet.

 

Phoneme Update

This week’s phonemes are   i,n,m.d  We will practise these daily on  Monday to Thursday and consolidate on Friday.

In our RE sessions this week we will be looking at the talents that God gave us.  Please could you send in a photograph of your child doing something they are good at.  This might be riding a bike,  baking, dancing, football, colouring etc.

Below are a few photographs of our first week at school.

Thank you for your support.

We went on a walk to find some of the things that God created.
