Welcome to Reception. It has been so lovely to see you and your smiling faces.

Dear children

We have had such a lovely week in Reception.  You have worked so hard and are really following the school golden rules, especially our new 'keeping everyone safe' rules.  We've been so lucky with the weather that we've managed to do lots of outdoor activities such as construction, water play and also PE with Mr Adams.
The book we are currently reading is called  'After the Fall' by Dan Santat. This book is a follow up to the familiar nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty and what life was like for him after his fall off the wall. It looks at how this accident resulted in Humpty Dumpty developing a fear of heights which stops him from partcipating in his favourite activity, which is bird watching from up high . It then looks in to how he overcomes his fear and climbs up that ladder, taking on step at a time, until he reaches the top. As part of our literacy and PSED focus the children were asked to draw a picture from a part of the story and were then involved in a discussion about it.  You all really grasped the message about how it is okay to feel sad and afraid but that we keep moving forward, keep trying our best to find a way to get back on that ladder, and climb back to the top. 
 
I hope you have a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing you next week.
