A very good evening to you all. 


What a busy week we've had!

We have continued our learning, from last week, about hearing and also investigated our sense of sight. Our learning has been greatly enhanced by a visit from Mr. Murray, an ophthalmologist, who told us all about how our eyes work and how best to keep our eyes healthy.

Thank you, Mr. Murray!


On Wednesday, we visited our church. We looked at the altar, visited Our Lady's Chapel and practiced kneeling, in preparation for next Friday morning's 'One World' liturgy.


Yesterday was the 'Grand Opening' of our new and refurbished library. All our teachers came to school dressed up as a character from a book and we were treated to hearing, not only the story of Charles Dickens' 'Oliver Twist', delivered by Mr. Taylor, but also, a fabulous interactive story delivered by a visiting storyteller!


Today, we came to school dressed in brightly-coloured clothes to raise awareness of the need to 'brighten up' the lives of those who are less fortunate than us. Many thanks to you all for your support in this venture and for your kind donations to CAFOD. 


This week's Reading Pack will be the final one of Autumn Term 1. In order for us to rotate the Reading Books, we would be grateful for the return of all Reading Packs on TUESDAY 22nd OCTOBER.

Many thanks in anticipation of this request.


Next week, we will be investigating our senses of taste and smell, exploring the 'seven-ness' of seven, learning the new sounds, 'e', 'u' and 'r' and the 'tricky words', 'I', 'the'/'The' and 'to'.


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and looking forward to seeing you on Monday!


The Reception Team.
