24th March 2017


A big 'Thank You' to all our mommies/mummies for joining us this afternoon for our Mother's Day celebrations! We're sure you'll agree that the children were fabulous, both in their performance and their sentiment - especially when you consider that they only heard the song, for the first time, on Monday! They have worked SO hard and we are all incredibly proud of them!


This week, we have been learning about Journeys into Outer Space and have enjoyed playing in our role-play areas: a Space Ship (outside) and 'Whatever Next!' - our text for the week - (inside). We have also been experimenting with different media and materials to build a rocket! - with great success!!


We have been preparing our Mother's Day gifts - a wall hanger and friendship bracelets - and have also been busy making jam tarts for our moms to enjoy, with a cup of tea or coffee, this afternoon. We hope you enjoyed them!


The weather has not been kind to us but, luckily, there has been the odd occasion when we have been able to enjoy a 'splashing' time outside without getting completely 'soaked through'!


Next week, we will continue with our research into 'Journeys into Outer Space'...


Wishing you all a peaceful and restful weekend,


The Reception Team.
