Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. We ask that children come into school in their PE kit on these days. 


Children will need to bring their reading book, diary and water bottle to school each day. Children do not need to bring a snack as they are provided with one, 


      Our topics for this half term are The Gruffalo and China        


Our learning will focus around the books 'The Gruffalo' and 'The Magic Paintbrush.'

The children will listen to, retell and act out the story of The Gruffalo. We will also be learning some Makaton signs to help with our re-telling. We will learn all about the woods; what can you see when you go to the woods? What lives there? Then we will visit a real wood! During our visit to Sherwood Pines, we will explore The Gruffalo trail and The Superworm trail. 

In the second half of the half term, our learning will be based around the book 'The Magic Paintbrush.' We will be imagining what we could paint with our own magic paintbrush! Children will also design and label their own dragon! We will also be learning about Chinese food and customs. We will be having a celebration for Chinese new year! 


As well as our visit to Sherwood Pines, we will also be visiting the library and the church this half term.
