Good evening!


Many thanks to those of you who supported this afternoon's Christmas Fayre, it was wonderful to see you all!

Thank you, too, for your kind donations for our Christmas Boutique. This venture affords the children an opportunity to purchase one gift for a family member or friend using real money! All donations must be 'new' and unused, ie: fit to be given as a gift. On the day of this event (Wednesday 19th December), we would suggest that you send your child to school with between £2 and £5. Please put all money in an envelope clearly labelled with their name and the amount enclosed.


This week, in addition to 'learning our lines' and practicing our songs for this Friday's Reception Christmas liturgy, we've been learning about Advent. We've found out that Advent means 'getting ready'!

On Wednesday, we visited the Advent Wreath in the main Reception area and, yesterday morning, recognised the Advent Wreath in Church.

We also created our own angels and Advent Wreaths.


Despite all of this, we have not neglected our phonics! This week, we have learned the sounds 'w' and 'x'.

This weekend's Reading Pack will be the last one of 2018. We will be grateful for its prompt return on TUESDAY 11th DECEMBER.


Wishing you all a peaceful and restful weekend and thanking you for your continued support.

 The Reception Team.


PLEASE NOTE: The Reception Christmas liturgy will take place on FRIDAY 14th DECEMBER at 2.00pm in the School Hall not Thursday 13th December as stated previously on this page.
