It has been a wonderful week in Reception class. We have been as busy as ever. We have looked at Lent and made our promises: do look at our wonderful Lenten Tree. We also spoke about what we could do to help others during Lent. We have chosen to support the Catholic Children's Society. Please encourage your children to fill their boxes with coins.

Our Mondrian Art Wall also looks amazing! Our Art Week project was a great success!

What an exciting week we have had in Nursery this week!! We had our first big trip out of Nursery to the Science Museum. The bus trip was full of adventure and the basement of the museum was interactive and engaging for our children. Thank you to all our parent helpers.

Book week saw us continue to look at Traditional stories. We had parent readers each day and on Friday Miss Windle came in to read to the children. The children all became authors and illustrators and made a book. We have displayed this in our room for all to enjoy.

We talked about getting ready for Easter and how the church gives us 40 days to get ready and prepare and that this is called Lent. The children each made a purple flower and we put them together to make a large flower with 40 petals. The children also found out that the special colour for preparing is purple and painted our foot purple and put the footprints on our RE wall.

We finished the week dressed as our favourite book character. Next week we are looking at the story 'The 3 Bears and Goldilocks'.

Have a wonderful weekend.
