To Reception Children and Families,
We would like to tell you all how much we miss you at St James. Here are some activities for you to do at home with your family until we see you again. We will upload different things to keep you busy and you can choose what you would like to do. The classroom is very quiet and we miss all of your smiles and funny stories.
Lots of Love From
Mrs Honey, Mrs Watson and Miss Robinson xxx
The Reception children had a fantastic time carving scary pumpkins with their special friends in Year 6.
After waiting for seven years, the Year 6 children finally got to meet their special friends. It was a special afternoon.
The children in reception enjoyed a very active festive season with a lot of hard work being put into the Christmas performance. Throughout the process it was lovely to see the children grow in confidence and we noticed some future stars appearing! The Christmas party of course was a great chance to dance and let loose a little with party games. Santa made a good choice for his dance partner this year – Mrs. Watson!
We also visited the farm to meet Santa. Despite the very cold winds, the children were thrilled to ride around the farm on the train to see the variety of animals living there. Cuddly adult bunnies and baby bunnies were lovingly held by the children which was one of the highlights, but also seeing a real live reindeer was a special moment and even being allowed to pat it. Inside Santa’s grotto the children had a chance to meet and chat with Santa, and then have a photo taken with him in his sleigh. We put these pictures in the children’s learning journeys which parents can view later this year.
Earlier in the term, reception also got to know our local library in Hebburn enjoying making a bookmark and borrowing a book of their choice. We were very proud of their behaviour and they are a credit to our school.
