Topics this term…


This term we are changing our planning to include children’s opinions and ideas.  We will be basing our work on current events and celebrations.  We are starting the term with our school vision, motto and rules.  During the term we will be welcoming visitors to discuss their careers and we will be visiting a community facility.

Outdoor Classroom

We will continue to work in the outdoor classroom on a Thursday.  Children can come to school dressed in appropriate outdoor clothing that you don't mind getting dirty on this day.  We also ask that children come with a coat and a change of shoes, wellingtons or trainers. The extra shoes need to be in a named carrier bag.
