In Reception this half term, our main focus is going to be celebrations and festivals. We intend to cover as many of the major festivals as possible over the coming weeks – including Halloween, Bonfire Night, Diwali, Hanukkah and Christmas. Our learning focus is to encourage your children to observe and talk about the differences and similarities in how these festivals are celebrated. If you or your families celebrate any of these festivals in a particular way, we would love to hear from you. Please speak with your child’s class teacher.
We are holding a Parent Workshop on Monday 19th November at 10:45am for all parents and carers to come into class and see our phonics scheme in action.
We will also be rehearsing for our Nativity performance – which this year is of “The Inn Crowd” by Matthew Crossey and Tom Kirkham. We will be performing it on:
Tuesday 4th December at 2:30pm
Wednesday 5th December at 9:30am
Details of how to book your tickets will be available closer to the time on the school newsletter.
We are also very excited to be visiting the Belgrade Theatre for a performance of “Santa’s Sparkly Surprise” by Iain Lauchlan on Thursday 13th December.
