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 did it! We earned 100 marbles!

When we work together as a whole class, for example, lining up quietly, following instructions, listening in assembly, we can earn marbles for our jar.

On Friday we had our long awaited treat: hot buttered crumpets (some wanted raspberry jam) with our milk and a story in the outside classroom.

As you can see the children really enjoyed their treat.

Well done reception. Can we do it again and have another treat? Yes we can! What will it be next time?
