Dear Parents/Carers,

Summer 1 Term

Welcome back to the start of a new term and we hope the children have had a good Easter break.

This half term our topic is called ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ and over the next few weeks we will be learning about lots of different animals. We will be finding out about where they like to live, what they eat and looking at their life cycles.

The children have decided they would like to set up a Pet shop as our role play area and we would be grateful of any donations to put in this area, for example toy animals, empty pet food containers, pet toys.

We would also like to thank you for all your donations towards our bug hotel. Mr Hall is helping the children to make the hotel and they are very excited to see which minibeasts we attract.

We will be going on our school trip to the Tropical Butterfly House in North Anston.  The date for the trip is Thursday 10th May and if you have not returned your child’s permission slip please do this as soon as possible.

We have also organised for Coach Andy to come into school each week to do Balance Bike training with the children. During this training the children will be given the opportunity to develop their skills in riding the balance bikes, as well as thinking about how we can stay safe when riding them.

Thank you for your continued support.  Please also see our curriculum page for further information.

Yours sincerely,

The Foundation Stage Team
(Mrs Wenban, Mrs Barratt and Mrs Bennett)
