A Day in the Life of a Reception child
A sneak peak into our Nursery classroom ...
Reception at Holy Rood, the voice of our pupils ...
“I really like that we can make things. I like to make my own walkie talkie.”
“We have so many toys to play with. The building blocks are my favourite.”
“I love going to the barked area.”
“I love lunchtime because I can see all my friends.”
“Holy Rood is so fun. I love my teachers!”
“The best thing about Holy Rood is that you can draw and write and make your own books!”
“I love playing with the train tracks.”
“I have so many friends in my school.”
“I can play in both classrooms. It’s so fun!”
“We get to daw. I like drawing cats outside.”
“I like making new friends and playing in choosing time."
