Early Years

Spring Term - Paws, Claws and Whiskers!

What do you know about baby animals? Do they have the same name as adult animals? Did you know that a baby owl is called and owlet?

This term we are learning all about animals and where they live. The children have started this topic using Owl Babies as the hook into the topic. We have been using the puppet theatre to retell the story using repeated refrains "I want my mummy!" and 'All owls think a lot'

Later in the term, all children with pets at home, are going to be able to bring their pet to school to meet the other children and for us to find out a little bit about the different animals - we are SUPER excited about this. We will also be looking life cycles and habitats using the books 'The very Hungry Caterpillar' and 'Monkey Puzzle'

Autumn Term 2018


What a fabulous start to the term we have had! 

The children have settled into the term and we have embarked on our journey to

'Stick at it like Stickman!'

We have been teaching the children about perseverance and how we can keep trying, even when we find it tough! 

The children have been on welly walks to find sticks to make their own stickman character and have already been demonstrating their ability to try hard.

This week we are making smoothies and linking it to healthy eating and maths. The children are learning the KITCHEN DISCO! Amazing fun! Kitchen Disco Song you can learn the song with your child!
