Christmas in Reception!

The children in Reception have had a very busy Christmas week. We thought you would like to see all the fun Christmas activities we have been doing.

On Monday we had our Christmas dinner, with the rest of Key Stage 1, in the hall. It was very yummy … especially the pudding!

On Wednesday we had our class Christmas party. We played lots of party games, ate lots of food and even had a Christmas boogie.

On Thursday, we performed our Nativity for all our family and friends. We were a bit nervous but we still enjoyed performing for everyone.
