Abbey Meadows Community Primary SchoolGrowing Together


Welcome to Reception!


This half term in Early Years we have been learning about Celebrations.  The children have learnt about why we celebrate Bonfire Night and talked about the different events we went to.  We even had our own bonfire in Forest School.  We also learnt about birthdays, we made our own cards and party hat and had a party to celebrate class FA Bear’s birthday.  We have also talked with the children about celebration’s around the world and finished our half term by talking about Christmas.  All the children really enjoyed learning the songs for the nativity and making Christmas Decorations.
