What a fantastic first week we have had all together in reception. The children have been a joy from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave our classroom. Many of our teachers here at Our Lady’s have commented on what a lovely, calm class we have. The children have been introduced to two of our special people in class this week:
- Merlin the Maths wizard, who has been very impressed with the children’s number knowledge and he has joined us for our number rhymes, some of which involve counting up to 10 and back!
- Bob the dog, our new addition! The children suggested lots of lovely names including Fluffy, Ralph, Milo, Arthur, Cuddles… and from our ‘pick a name out of the hat’ style choice tool, he is now named Bob! He watches out all day for children working extremely hard in our classroom and at the end of the day he has the hard task of choosing one person to look after him for the evening.
As we know, pictures can speak a thousand words, so I will let the photos do the talking this week!
Here we are in our Reasoning Area:
Here we are in the library, sand, home corner, small world and our art studio:
We have enjoyed learning outdoors and making Bob the builder with Mrs Mahoney!
As I am sure you are, we are very proud of the children. Next Monday 24th September we have our special Welcome assembly at 9.10am, I hope you can make it!
Have a lovely weekend!
Miss Dixon and Mrs Mahoney
