Mary's Birthday

Reception have enjoyed celebrating Mary's Birthday on Wednesday 8th September. The children have made their own cards for Mary and presented them to her statue. We then sang Happy Birthday to her and prayed the Hail Mary.

Roald Dahl Day

Reception have enjoyed focusing on the story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for Roald Dahl Day. We have enjoyed creating our own chocolate bar designs and have even had a go at making our own sweets from playdough. We enjoyed displaying them in our very own Wonka Shop!
