Have snow fear, Christmas is here!

Reception have been busy learning about and preparing for Christmas!

Reception have had so much fun preparing for Christmas, but it is important to remember why we celebrate this special event! In Literacy and Understanding the World, Reception have been learning about the birth of Jesus. They have engaged in extended conversations about the nativity story, learning new vocabulary as well as sharing their own personal experiences of Christmas and other special occasions. Reception also had a go at acting out the story.

The children have really lived up to our Early Year's Vision:

Be an Explorer, Be a Trier, Be a Talker, Be a Creator.

We have been persisting with applying our phonics skill to writing letters to Santa, Christmas lists, invitations and cards. 

Fine Motor Skills

To help develop our fine motor and scissor skills, Reception have also been persisting with wrapping presents for our role play area.
