Reception's Magical Topic
Written by Holly
This term reception has been learning about magic and they have enjoyed it. When they began everyone was excited to do it so the first day they read Room on the Broom a story by Julia Donaldson a really good author then they did Winnie the Witch book, a story by Valeria Thomas another really good author.
This week the book they have been reading about is called The Magic Hat by Mem Fox. Mrs Heath told me all about what happens in the story. One fine day, from out of town and without any warning at all a magic hat appears in the sky. It tumbles and bounces through the air and makes magic wherever it lands. Everyone is delighted as, one by one, the townspeople are transformed into giant playful animals. And then a wizard arrives.
So far all of them have loved all of the books if I was them I would like all of the books they have read after this week they are going to start a new book. All the reception children love books so that’s good for their reading and learning.
As a treat for the children, all of the teachers in reception said they could dress up as any magical creatures. We had witches, unicorns and wizards.
