A Happy New Year to all our families and a huge welcome to all a new families that have joined us in January. We are enjoying our new topic 'Weather' where we will be trying to answer questions like "What happens when it gets cold?" "Where do animals go in Winter?" and "Who climbed up the water spout?"
We will update our webpage with lots of photographs and videos of our learning as well as top tips to do at home to consolidate this learning
Thank you for your continued support

Over the next few weeks children are invited to bring boxes into school filled with some of their favourite objects. This can be photographs, pictures, toys, souvenirs and other memories, anything they want to share with their group and encourage some descriptive language.

Poetry week Monday 7th November
Next week we will be using lots of poetry at Story Time. Listening to poems and rhymes will help your child to develop a sense of rhyme and rhythm and support their listening skills. Poems use words to paint mental pictures so also help to expand children’s imagination. By sharing poems with your child, you help them to learn that play with words can be fun. Let us know if you and your child enjoy any particular poems and rhymes.
