Welcome to Emerald class
Your little ones have completed their first term in school and I am sure that you are all very pleased with how they have settled into school life! To see so many smiles first thing in the morning is a delight. I hope you have had a refreshing half term break!
Term 2 is set to be a very busy term culminating with many Christmas festivities such as the Christmas Fayre, productions, and dinners to name but a few.
This term our topic is ‘Let’s Explore’. We will start ‘Outdoor Explorer’ time, this is when we will wrap up in warm/waterproof clothes and learn outside the classroom. During the holiday I have been working on the ‘Mud kitchen’ provision in the outdoor area. We are collecting anything metal or wooden for the kitchen area along with herbs and winter flowers to create an attractive and inspiring setting. If you have anything to donate it will be very greatly received.
We will use our outdoor area on a daily basis and outside all the areas of the curriculum will be accessed. Yes that includes writing, role play and reading, along with the water, sand and large construction area.
Please see the school diary dates for up and coming school events.
