Reception Class get to meet Dippy the Dinosaur at Dorset County Museum

There was the opportunity for some dressing up and searching for some fossils in sand. The children had magnifying glasses to identify their fossil finds!

Posting Christmas cards to our family 1
The children in Reception Class all wrote a Christmas card to their families.

The class walked down to the local post office and each purchased a stamp and posted their letter in the letter box outside.

Mrs Moore, from the Post Office, kindly gave each child a Christmas chocolate which was a lovely surprise for the children.
