We have had such a wonderful first week back, and what a great start to term 2! It has been lovely to see the children settle so quickly back into the school routines, eager to learn and getting to know their new friends in all the Reception classes.
We started off the week sharing with each other what we did over the Christmas holidays, and what Father Christmas brought us. We continued this theme in Literacy, where we wrote either a thank you letter to Father Christmas or wrote about our holidays. The children have tried hard with their writing, and have remembered to use some of their phonic knowledge.
In Maths, we have been looking at naming and describing 3D shapes. We enjoyed listening to 3D shapes songs and going on a 3D shape hunt around our classroom. We will be carrying on with this learning next week.
The most exciting part of the week for us all was our trip to the theatre to watch "We're going on a bear hunt". The children have enjoyed listening to and joining in with the story. They have had so much fun acting out the story and pretending to go on their own bear hunt. The children thoroughly enjoyed the trip with plenty of laughs and smiles. We are all very proud at how well the children behaved on the trip. A big thank you as well to all the parents who helped us on our trip.
