Half term information Autumn 2 2022

It is fair to say that the children’s second half term in Reception has been a jam-packed and hugely successful one! With our topic of 'Terrific Tales' it has been a wonderful half term too.


The half was busily filled by delving into fairy tales. They thought of alternative endings to Goldilocks and the Three Bears and created story maps of the Cinderella story. They even had had a Royal Banquet for which the children made jam sandwiches and had a feast! They danced to music and had fun at the Royal ball! Lots of role play occurred, especially when pretending to be part of the Three Little Pigs and The Gingerbread Man. The children have been immersed into learning new letter sounds and are beginning to write words and many could therefore label some characters from their favourite fairy tales. 


We do hope you feel that your child has fully settled into life at Monkfield Park and enjoys coming into school each day. We wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you in the New Year, when the Spring term begins.
