Autumn 2:

This term Explorer 1 have been looking at ‘our colourful world’ and all its different celebrations. We have enjoyed activities such as making breadstick sparklers for Bonfire Night, creating a beautiful handprint wreath for Remembrance day and making clay diyas for Diwali. All of these activities and more have given the children an opportunity to explore through their senses and make their learning fun.

We have also welcomed our parents to join us for a Christmas Parental Engagement where we enjoyed lots of glitter, sticking and everything Christmassy. Our trip to see 'Jack and the Beanstalk' at the theatre was exciting and allowed us to experience something new and different. A big thank you to all the parents for your help and support with recent activities.

Our phonics lessons have seen us focusing on the letter ‘m’ and during maths we have been looking at numbers  1 & 2. Jess continues to help us with rebound therapy and has taught us to be confident when bouncing independently on the big trampoline during our P.E sessions.

On Wednesday afternoon our Forest School lessons are starting to grow colder but we still enjoy getting very messy with Stacey during our time with her.


Spring 1:

Our topic is ‘Sing me a song'  The children will be given many opportunities to complete activities associated with nursery rhymes. 


P.E will remain on a Monday morning so can all children please wear their P.E kits.

Forest School will continue on Wednesday PM so please remember to send in labelled waterproof clothes and wellies.

Library sessions are on Tuesday and Thursday so if you could send in children’s library books to change we would be very grateful.

As the weather is cold we remind parents to please label all coats, hats, scarves etc.
