Autumn Term 2019-20


What a busy first term at school we have had! Mrs Getlevog and Mrs Lee are really pleased with how well we have all settled into school life. There are so many new things to get used to; school dinners, getting changed for PE, play times and being at school for a whole day!

Our topics this term have been 'Who Am I?' and 'What Happened Long, Long Ago?' We have taken part in lots of fun activities and learned so many new things, the best being learning to read!

We greatly enjoyed our 'magical Wow lesson!' to start our topic of 'What Happened Long, Long Ago?' It centered around the story of 'The Gingerbread Man'. (Which was written long, long ago.) We started by making gingerbread men out of play dough. Over play time Mrs Lee put them in the oven in the role play house. When we returned to the classroom after play time, Mrs Lee took them out of the oven and they had turned into real gingerbread men! It was magic! We had great fun decorating and eating them!

Our grown ups have been very busy too. They have joined in with 'Stay and Play' and had a meeting with Mrs Getlevog about how they can help us with our reading at home. After the meeting they joined in with one of our phonic lessons. We enjoyed showing them some of the things we can do!

We're looking forward to Christmas now - the Nativity and Christmas parties...

We've had a brilliant first term and are looking forward to the Spring term! From everyone in Reception, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
