Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

Our last few weeks in Reception have been extremely busy preparing for Christmas.  In our final week we have been able to enjoy Christmas celebrations.

The children have enjoyed designing and creating their Christmas party hats.  They were really excited to wear them for our school Christmas dinner of turkey with all the trimmings!

We watched a pantomime production of ‘The Wind in the Willows.’  The children really enjoyed it and there were lots of laughs along the way.

Reception A’s visit to Cheshunt Library!

Today we went on a school visit to the library. We had stories read to us by the librarian and we had the opportunity to read different books. Some of us were very lucky and got to take out our own story books using our new library cards!
