In Reception we have spent this week reading and enjoying Penny Dale’s ‘Ten in the Bed’.
We looked at the characters and made our own sound bubbles in Literacy, and spent time counting forwards and backwards to 10 in maths. We loved acting out the song ‘There were 10 in the bed, and the little one said…..’
On Friday we came to school in our pyjamas and brought a special night time toy with us. We made biscuits and hot chocolate and had a lovely story time together.

The School’s Council decided to support the people in the Philippines, who have suffered recently from a devastating typhoon, by asking everyone in school to donate any small change they might have. After one week they put the pennies into a line to see if they could reach reception class from class 3. They more than achieved their target and so they included a diversion around the hall. Their efforts enabled them to make a line 133 metres long ! There’s more, they still collected 18kg of coins which is not included in the line. How much have they raised ? The children are still doing the math as I write!
A special mention to Faith Morey , who on her own initiative , raised £30.25 in support of the Philippines. Well done Faith!
Wednesday update from Sarah , ”she has come off some of the monitors now and they are slowly increasing her food. Will be nice to get her home, but think it may be a couple of weeks yet. ”
Friday – “They took Sophia’s feeding tube away today yay, hoping to take her home very soon. Lots of sleep deprived nights, but that is normal.”
Saturday 23rd November. Good news! Sarah and Sophia are allowed to go home.
