Our topic for the first half of the Spring Term is ‘We’re going on a Journey’. Children will be learning about different ways of travelling- transport that helps us, travels on roads, tracks, on and underwater and in the air. This topic lends itself well to many WOW events including visitors into school as well as going out and about in the local area to carry out our own journeys. Please look out for dates on the weekly letters as we may need your help to come along with us.
Week commencing 8th January 2018
Welcome back to the Spring Term. I’m not quite sure where the Autumn Term went! The children have settled fantastically back into school life, showing a very mature attitude to learning. They are particularly enjoying our new role play area which is a ‘sweet shop’. This was an idea completely from the children and I am proud to say having ownership of this has really encouraged them to look after the area even more so than they would normally. Well done Marvellous Mermaids! Children are also enjoying their new phonics groups and have taken to the new routine very well.
