Autumn 2:

This half term our topic has been ‘Our Colourful World’ and we have looked at the celebrations of Halloween, Diwali, Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day, Birthdays and of course Christmas. We have done lots of fun activities like pumpkin carving, glittery firework pictures and lots of sensory exploration.

We enjoyed our World Cup Day where we made pizzas and decorated an Italian flag with our handprints to mark England’s first game of the tournament.

We have started our Christmas festivities by putting decorations on the school tree and coming into school in our pyjamas for the Polar Express Day which was lots of fun.

We have looked at the letter A in phonics work and have done many fun activities to explore this letter. In maths, we have been looking at numbers 1-5 and some children have been starting to put quantities to the numbers.

The children have all really enjoyed their weekly swimming experiences and have gained confidence and skills.                            

Spring 1:

Our topic is ‘Sing Me a Song’ and we will be looking at different nursery rhymes and doing activities based on them. 

 

Reminders:

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.
