                     Autumn 2 2019- Celebrations and festivals

Welcome back! 

 

We are most certainly in for a very busy half term!! We have lots of exciting things planned for the children; baking bread, a trip to Holme Head House, writing letters to Santa and taking part in our Christmas production - Snowman at Sunset. 

                      Spring 2 (2020)- Bears

 

 

Welcome back! We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a very well earned rest!

 

Foundation Stage children had an action-packed last half term! They learned lots about Harvest through the story The Little Red Hen, including using the little red hens’ recipe to make their own bread. The children also learned about the Christmas story and why some people celebrate the birth of baby Jesus. And not forgetting being part of a wonderful performance ‘The Snowman at sunset’. They were amazing! A huge well done to all children for having the confidence when on the big stage!

This half term Foundation Stage will begin a new topic ‘Bears’. The children will be going on lots of outdoor adventures starting with a bear hunt!! So please ensure your child has wellies and warm clothing in school every day.

 

 

This half term we will also welcome three new nursery children in to our class.

 

 

Reminder for Reception children: please ensure reading books and reading record are in bags every day.

 

Finally, Foundation Stage staff would like to wish all parent’s and children a happy and healthy New Year for 2020!
