We have had a lovely day today. The children looked wonderful and a big thank you to you for their costumes and the children in need donation.

Please see below the latest curriculum map which this half term is all about materials. Today your child should have brought a letter home informing you of the part they will play in our Christmas production.

We have been learning about the 5 senses. Today we have been tasting different food and had to decide if it was sweet, salty, bitter and sour.

We have taken lots of photos of the children in the different learning areas. I hope you enjoy looking at them.

We would like to welcome our new reception children and parents to a new academic year. It is a very exciting time for all the children but it can also be a daunting time for some. The children will soon settle and begin to make new friends and they will begin to learn the classroom and school routines. For the first few weeks of starting school we will be carrying out observations and getting to know your child so we have a starting point from which to start their learning. It also gives your child a chance to explore their classroom and all the different learning areas which aid learning. The different learning areas can be found below and during the settling in period we will take photos of your child in the different learning areas for you to see.

If you have any questions or you are concerned about something please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the early years team. We look forward to working with your child and helping him or her to flourish and enjoy school life.
