19th May 2017


Well... what a wet week we've had!

Luckily, we've enjoyed plenty of exciting indoor and 'under the canopy' activities creating ladybirds and worms. We've explored doubling numbers (with ladybird spots), wondered about why the ladybird was so bad-tempered and written about things which make us feel grumpy. We also had a great time using tweezers to count out 'spaghetti worms' into different containers. They were so slippery!


Today, we participated in our whole school May Procession. All the children were very reverent and respectful and, as we have been practising saying the Hail Mary every day throughout May, were able to join in as we processed around the school to lay our flowers beside the statue of Our Lady. We are so proud of them! Thank you all for your kind donations of flowers to support this wonderful occasion.


Next week, we will be continuing our learning about 'Superworm' and hearing some 'Anansi the Spider' stories.

There will be no homework sent home on Thursday as we break up next Friday (26th).


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


The Reception Team.
