Things are very different for us all at the moment. School is closed and we are all staying safely at home.
Over the past few days you have all been sending in pictures of you and your work for our school website. It has been lovely to see you all and your fantastic work.
Here are our pictures, see if you can find your picture, your friends and see what busy jobs your teachers have been doing. Look carefully to see if you can spot any of our new starters, too!
We hope that you are all well and we cannot wait to see everyone again soon, but until then stay safe and take care from Mrs Hamilton, Mrs Broughton,Mrs Roach, Miss Charters, Mrs Caine, and Mrs Downham.
Spring 2 - Food
This half term our topic is FOOD. We have lots of exciting activities planned including pancake day, a Teddy Bear's picnic and Handa's surprise jobs! We will have lots of opportunities to explore different foods including smelling, tasting and touching tasty treats! We will talk about which foods are healthy and which are treat foods which we should eat less often. The children will enjoy a Supermarket role play area with opportunities to write shopping lists and receipts. In the snug Nursery will be printing with fruits and vegetables and finger painting foods, thinking carefully about the colours they need to use.

We are enjoying learning about different types of animals; farm animals, pets, jungle animals and Elmer. We are looking forward to changing our role play area into a vets and having some special visitors to school!
On Australia Day we found out about some of the animals in Australia, what they look like and sound like.
