We have had lots of fun learning all about India.  We have especially enjoyed finding out all about the Taj Mahal.  Did you know that Shah Jahan had the Taj Mahal built for his wife after she died? Ask Reception Class for the gruesome fact about what happened to the men and women who worked on the Taj Mahal!

Wow!

Reception Class had a very busy and fun-filled day on Thursday.

We started the day with our 'Stay and Play' session and had so much with our families.  We do love it when our families come and share our learning with us.  Thank you to all of you who made the morning such a success.

We then walked up to our local fire station in the afternoon to have a special guided tour!

This was a reward for Reception Class after we had taken part in a competition to design a new poster for the fire station.
