Our new topic is called 'Into the Woods' and we introduce this with Julia Donaldson's text 'Stick Man'. This enables the children to talk about their Christmas holidays and to explore the wnter season. We will be exploring the small wooded area of our school and will be re-enacting the story, learning about the different animals that live in the woods, as well as beginning to measure sticks using non-standard units.
Our next book will be Martin Waddell's 'Owl Babies' and we have arranged for Lancashire Birds of Prey to visit us with their owls and birds - the children will learn about the different types of owls we have in the U.K.
As always, we keep you up to date with our Reception Newsletters.
We would like to thank all the parents for their generosity for the gifts we received - we wish you and your families a lovely Christmas break and we are looking forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
