Spring 2:

 This half term our topic has been ‘Food Glorious Food’ We looked at the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and enjoyed lots of fun activities based on the book including making caterpillar paintings using a variety of objects, a caterpillar ball sorter and matching activities.

The children have done lots of fun Easter crafts and activities including a pom pom painted bunny. We also enjoyed sampling a Hot Cross Bun that had been toasted over the fire pit during outdoor learning.

We have looked at the letters m,a,s,d,t  in phonics work and have done many fun activities to explore this letter. In maths, we have continued looking at numbers 1-5 and putting quantities to the numbers. They have also been looking at long and short in various ways.

We have been working on fine motor skills each morning, 1:1 at the workstation, which has been very beneficial.


Summer 1:

Our topic is ‘Minibeasts’ and we will be reading and doing activities based on the book ‘Superworm’ which should be lots of fun!



We have PE on Monday mornings; please can you send children in the PE kits on this day (jogging bottoms are fine in the cold weather)

On Wednesday mornings, we have Outdoor Learning so please can you send your child in appropriate outdoor wear or send them in for us to put on in school.

Please make sure the home school diary is sent in to school each day so we can tell you all the exciting things we have been doing during the day.

Our swimming sessions have now finished so kits will not be required on Tuesdays and Fridays.
