It’s lovely to be back in school and seeing lots of children from our class. I knew some of you are still not able to come back yet, but you are definitely in my thoughts. I hope you are all well and keeping yourselves safe. I am still very pleased when I receive an email of how you are getting on, so please keep them coming. If you haven’t yet sent one, I wold love to hear from you and see what you have been doing.

Look what we have be doing in Reception.

The children had so much fun at Chester Zoo.
A dental health nurse came to talk to us how to look after our teeth. The children enjoyed brushing the teeth. We learnt all about the things that are good and bad for our teeth.
The children learnt about Chinese New Year and enjoyed making a Chinese banquet to share with their friends. They loved cutting up the vegetables and eating the food with chopsticks.
The children have been learning about the different people who help us.
After learning about the Police, they helped catch a ‘big baddie’ who had come into school and taken some of their things. They enjoyed investigating and looking for clues.
Look who came to see the children at their Christmas party.
