Term 1 - Why Am I Special?

This term we will be getting to know each other through our ‘All About Me’ topic. Through this topic the children will be exploring what makes us special. We will be looking at our growing bodies and our senses, keeping healthy, our homes, the people who care for us, and our feelings and emotions. As with all our curricular activities, the children could take the topic in any direction. Shortly, we will be sending home a 'special bag' for your child to fill with their interests and photographs of their family which they will share with their key worker group. We are looking forward to learning all about ourselves and each other. You can help at home by talking to your child about what makes them special such as family traditions, their interests and what makes them unique.  

4th October - Today we learnt how to brush our teeth and why brushing our teeth twice a day is important in order to stay healthy. The children had lots of fun learning how to brush their teeth with ‘Bud’ on YouTube (Brush Along with Bud).

Ollie Owl is our class friend. One child is chosen each week as the 'Person of the Week'. This might be for super work or excellent behaviour or amazing effort. When your child is chosen they will get to take Ollie home for the weekend and write and draw about what you get up to together. Please take extra good care of him and bring him back safely on the following Monday.
