Reception

 

   Memo

I

 

Dear Reception Class,

Nearly the end of term! What a wonderful year we have had together! You have been a fantastic group to teach and I know each one of you is so ready to move to Year 1.

We need to organise our academic morning Solar System piece to perform to your parents. I have written them a letter which I shall ‘pocket’ on Tuesday, telling them which planet you will be describing. We will finalise that on Monday this week and you can take your piece home and practise it. Also have a think about decorating a t shirt which you can wear for the performance and Jack is going to let us borrow his planet models for you to hold.

The last swimming is tomorrow, it will be a fun splash one!

See you tomorrow.
