Welcome to the final half term of the year. We are looking forward to lots of things this half term. The children have really enjoyed watching the caterpillars grow and change into butterflies and we will be releasing them into the wild very soon. We are still hoping to get some eggs so that the children will be able to watch these and find out how the chicks hatch out.
We will be reading some more of our favourite stories.
Why not visit the library and help your child to choose some of these stories or any others they would like to share with you?
We also have some other exciting events to look forward to this term. Please see our newsletter below for the events and dates.
Thank you for all your enthusiasm and support, we really appreciate it and the children love sharing their learning with you!
This half term we are looking forward to reading one of our favourite stories, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We will have some caterpillars in our class so that we can watch them change. We are also hoping to have some eggs that we can watch hatch in to chicks!
You may have noticed that we have made a few changes to our learning environment. We have been working with Early Excellence to develop the children's play and our interactions with the children. This means we are focusing more on the children's interests and interacting with them in their play.
Pizza Express visit
Beech Class will be visiting Pizza Express on Thursday 7th February. We will be going in the morning and all the children (and hopefully teachers!) will have the opportunity to make their own pizza. The cost of the trip is £5. Please make your payment to Jan or Sunita on main reception.
Spring 1 - Let's Create
We are really excited to be back for a new term and look forward to all the learning we will be doing.
Our topic for this half term is Let's Create. We will be encouraging the children to use their learning powers, in particular, 'Resourceful' and 'Resilience' to create their own models, designs and creations.
What do you want to make or create?
What will you use to make it with?
How will you do it?
How can you fasten things together?
Remember to use your class homework menu to choose some exciting activities to do at home. We look forward to seeing your creations. You can bring your models in to share with your class or email photos to your class teacher.
