Our week 26/03 :)

This week we have been exploring height. We made a class height chart. The children measured themselves. We have been making the most out of the good weather and the children have enjoyed “cooking” with mud. This week we have been reading the Gruffalo and we have used natural resources to build homes for the characters from the story πŸ™‚

Please click on the link below for this week’s newsletter and homework. We will also send home paper copies. Please remember to send in completed homework by next Wednesday so that we can share it in class together. Well done for working so hard on your homework last week! πŸ™‚

Have a lovely weekend, The Reception Team πŸ™‚

World Book Day

Today is a not very normal World Book Day. Normally today we dress up and talk about amazing books. Unfortunately it’s been postponed for a bit.

HOWEVER some of our great teachers have volunteered for MASKED READER!!!

Can you guess the person reading who works at our school? Watch the videos linked and then write your answers on Google Classroom. One person who gets the answers right and explains what their favourite book is and why will win a prize!! If you are using Google Classroom you can access via there and input your answers. If you’d still like to enter but don’t use it why not write who you think it is and which book is your favourite in the comments below…Good luck!
