Last half Term

Last term we talked about autumn and why the leaves fall off the trees, we looked at books to show the children what happens to trees over the autumn.

The children experimented with colour changes through painting and science experiments. Wo made volcanos using vinegar, bicarb, lime juice and food colour to replicate what happens when a volcano erupts.


Letter of the week

We will be supporting your child’s learning by having a Letter of the Week, please encourage your child or support them in finding something from home or outside for each different Letter of the Week. We have a phonics box for your child to put their item into and talk about the letter sounds during group time. This will support them in their phonic awareness.


Show & Tell

Your child can bring in their show and tell if they like, we will be doing this through key person groups:

Week 1: Badgers/Courtney

Week 2: Hedgehogs/Rachel

Week 3: Rabbits/Siobhan

Week 4: Chickens/Carmen

Week 5: Swans/Nicola


Help required

We always need help with small DIY/Garden jobs so if you have any time please speak to Nicola.


Please feel free to bring in a pair of slippers for your child. This will support their independence in changing their shoes.


Open Door Policy Please remember you are free to talk to your Key Person at any time and you have access to your child’s learning journey at any time.
