Let’s Celebrate!

In reception our theme is ‘Celebrations’ and there is a lot to celebrate this autumn term, not only in our reception class but across the country and sometimes in other parts the world too.

Our first big event is our whole school Harvest assembly. We will be learning about what it means to harvest different types of foods and about Harvest Celebrations and festivals.

Another celebration is Divali. What is Divali? What is the story behind it? Who celebrates Divali? How is Divali celebrated? Where is it celebrated? These are just some of the questions we will be finding out about, in our last week of term. Very exciting!


We had a fantastic trip to the library today. It is Library Week across the country so great timing for us.

Thank you to our parents who came with us. It was great that they were also able to learn more about the library service.

We had a long walk there and back but the children were brilliant: Excellent behaviour so well done everyone.

The library are going to send us letters to return to the library and hopefully lots of the children will become members.

We heard three different stories and found out how to borrow and return books.

A big thank you to Weston Favell library and staff for inviting us, it was a great morning.
