Term 4 – Grow Grow Grow

We had a great time during Term 4 learning all about the garden and growing, even with the wet weather we still enjoyed having fun in the outside area.  Hopefully Term 5 will bring some more sunshine.  We also had a great time on our class trip to Cogges, there were lots of animals to see and we had fun making and tasting the bread.

Term 3 – What does the Weather Man say?

The children have been enjoying our topic ‘What did the Weatherman say…” and have been very keen weather watchers.  We have been closely observing the weather and have also set up a rain gauge in our playground and have been measuring the rain and temperature daily.

 

Term 2 – Let’s Celebrate!

The children worked so hard this term. We began by learning about lots of different festivals and the children really enjoyed learning about Diwali, Firework night and Hanukkah and of course Christmas! The topic prompted lots of rich vocabulary and some fantastic role play. Below are some photos from the Term:

We were incredibly impressed with how focused the children were with learning their dances and the songs for ‘Lights Camel Action’ and we are sure you’ll agree, they did everyone proud!

Here are some photographs of our end of term celebrations.  We really enjoyed our music session with Saltbox.

 

Forest School

During Term 2, the children have really enjoyed Forest School “It’s the best time of the week” many of the children say! We’ve been very lucky take part in the following activities this term; outdoor paint gallery, puppet shows, made woodland crowns, Bear Hunt through the woods, flower poises and reindeer decorations.   Please continue to send your child in with warm clothes as during Term 3 we will still be going every Friday.
