Welcome Back! 

We will be starting this half term with an exciting enrichment day with a ‘Music’ theme. The children will be participating it lots of exciting creative activities including making musical instruments. We will be starting our Topic based on our favourite author, Julia Donaldson. The foundation children will exploring lots of books including: Spinderella, The Gruffalo, A Squash and a Squeeze, The High Way Rat, Super Worm and many more. Children will be involved in lots of STEM activities with a creepy crawly focus.        

This term we will also be visiting Austerfield Study Centre where the Children will participate in a Gruffalo trail and get the opportunity to handle animals from the story.

We will also be celebrating science week, where the children will enjoy lots of messy experiments and learn about bugs and mini-beasts. We’ll go on bug hunts is the school Wild Area, search for these mini-beasts, hiding in darkened nooks and crevices. Can we count their legs & wings? Can we classify, draw and make them?

We will be taking part in lots of exciting activities such as; baking, sewing, creative activities, retelling stories in our outdoor woodland area and taking part in many creative activities all planned around children's interests.

Our home school links continue to be extremely strong! All of our parents are working with their child on individual targets and producing some amazing home learning projects. THANK YOU!
