Children in the Reception class have been reading ‘The Enormous Turnip’. The children have enjoyed using the small world characters to verbally retell the story and they have enthusiastically joined in with the repeated refrains. Alongside using a turnip to look at, feel and smell, the children have also been decorating turnips. Next week we are going to make vegetable soup.
Reception class had a wonderful time visiting St Mary’s Church. The children spent time exploring the inside of the church and noticed many things like the statues of Mother Mary and the beautiful stained glass windows that depicted different stories from the Bible. Father Steffan read the Nativity story and we sang a hymn. Before heading back to school we had a tour around the Spiritual Garden.
Reception class enjoyed a fantastic visit to the Horniman Museum in Forest Hill. The children enjoyed exploring and discovering a wide range of animals. There was also an opportunity to try on animal masks, before meeting the animals outside. Well done to all of the children for their excellent behaviour and thank you to the parents who joined us to help make it a successful visit.
Reception went to visit Greenwich on the 21st January to visit one of the most famous ships in the world – The Cutty Sark. The children had a wonderful day out learning all about how the ship got its name and what it used to bring back from overseas. A huge thank you to our wonderful parents who accompanied the children on the trip – we hope they had as much fun as we did!’
