 Well, we have had a fantastic term this term continuing with all our regular activities to help our new children feel settled and get used to our routines. We have had some fun making some Halloween pictures of spider cobwebs and pumpkins as well as some lovely glittery firework pictures. We have made lots of yummy food on our cooking days including some cheese straws, fairy cakes, flapjack, shortbread and sandwiches.

Our children have really enjoyed our wellie walks this term, exploring the forest area up on the main school field, finding treasures such as feathers and conkers as well as inspecting the wildlife......we have found lots of spiders, worms, woodlice, millipedes and earwigs.

We look forward to another fun filled term next term where we will continue to do our weekly activities including; baking, library visits, wellie walks, dance activities, songs and rhymes and lots of free play.


Please see our 'Dates for the Diary', below. We will be sending out more information closer to the time.


We will keep you regularly updated with any dates for your diaries and photos of your children. If any of you wish to talk to us regarding your child/ren's learning, please do come in and talk to us whenever you like. We also hold regular parent days which will keep you updated on your child/ren's progress.
