Thank you for the great things you have sent in for homework last week, the children have really enjoyed reading ‘The Little Red Hen’. Today we made bread just like the little Red Hen did and this afternoon Seren’s mum brought in some real hens for us to look at.
We have started the children with reading books, it is essential that they have a reading folder to carry the books to and from school. These are available at the junior office for £4.00. Please bring your child’s book and book bag into school every day and write in the record book and let us know how your child has gone on. Each week we will have ‘Reader of the Week’, the children who have read the most at home will be allowed to have a ‘dip in the box’.
We will also be setting the dough area out for a birthday party to link with our reading scheme. If you have any birthday candles, table cloths, old birthday cards or party invitations we could make good use of them!
We would also be grateful if anyone has any dressing-up clothes they could spare and any items left over from Halloween, they would come in useful as we will be reading the Funnybones stories.
As we come to the end of our first half term we would like to say how proud we are of all the children and we are pleased at how well they have all settled into school.
Finally we would like to wish you all a happy half term holiday.
Thank you for your continued support,
The Reception Team
