Half Term Information Autumn 2 2023

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 made mini books of Room on the Broom, retold the story of The Three Little Pigs and created story maps of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. They also enjoyed acting out scenes from Cinderella and choosing which character they would be. They danced to music and had fun at the Royal ball during PE! They also thoroughly enjoyed going on a bus to the theatre to see Aladdin and joining in with the phrases and songs. 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.
