Reception

 Hello and welcome to our class.

In our class we have Mrs Mackey, Mrs D’Arcy, 19 girls, 13 boys and 10 goldfish.

We have all settled in well to life in Reception class, and are getting to know lots of new friends. We have been trying to use the Listening and Empathy Learning Power in our play and carpet time. Trunky (our Learning Power elephant) is looking forward to spending fun weekends with the children when they receive our Learning Power Award.

We were all shocked when a visitor to our class left some unusual footprints behind. We were filled with wonder, and started to investigate who it could have been?

A unicorn?

The three bears?

A cheetah ?

A bouncy football?

We were so excited when we discovered it had been Elmer the elephant!

Elmer’s story has helped us to think about how other people are feeling, and that we are all special in our own way.

This half term we will continue to develop our social skills with our new friends and learn Elmer’s story in our Talk for Writing sessions.
