Spring 1:

This half term our topic has been ‘Tell Me a Story’. We have looked at the stories ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ and ‘The Ugly Duckling’. We have been exploring lots of sensory resources around each book as well as watching and listening to the stories and songs on the screen.

In cookery we made bear shaped sandwiches, rice Krispie nests and tasted porridge.

In maths we learned about measures and patterns. We looked at big and small, heavy and light and full and empty. 

In science we explored forces by looking at floating and sinking. We sang the song ‘5 Little Ducks’ while floating plastic ducks on a tray of water.


Spring 2:

Our topic next half term is ‘Let’s Go Travelling’, and we will be reading and doing activities based on the book ‘The Train Ride’.



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

On Tuesday afternoons the children have the chance to visit the school library and choose a book to bring home to share with you. Please return these book on the next Tuesday so they can then choose another one.

On Wednesday afternoon, 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.

Thank you for all your help and support this half term, it is always appreciated.
