This half term our topic is 'Plant Power'. To introduce the topic and give the children hands on experience we held a 'Plant Power' Day on Friday 17th June. During the day the children went on a plant hunt and explored the local woods. The children also planted their own seed for them to take home and look after. We are looking forward to seeing how the plants grow!
During this half term the children will be continuing with their Phonics/Writing and Maths as well as taking part in Science, PE, History, DT, Computing, Music, Metacognition and Learning for Life lessons.
The children continue to have PE lessons on Thursdays and Fridays so please make sure PE kits are in school on those days. Please make sure that the children have suitable clothes for outdoor lessons.
If you have any questions or would like to speak to the class teachers or Year Leader (Miss Sutcliffe), please contact the office to make an appointment.
