Reception (Miss Dixon)

Hi everyone! 
 

I cannot believe it is our last week in Reception! How quick has that gone!  I know it’s not been the year we planned but I am so proud of each of you. I have loved watching you blossom throughout Reception. 
 

Here is a little poem for you: 

 

In March 2020, things didn’t go as planned,

we all were told to stay at home, 

make sure to wash your hands.

This year has been so special,

We watched you learn and grow.

But now the time has come for you,

To spread your wings and go.

So hold your head up proudly,

we know that you’ll go far,

you'll be a shining star,

just being who you are! 
 

Love from Miss Dixon ✨😊x
