Spring 4 Newsletter 2016

Welcome back to Spring 4 Term, we hope that you had a relaxing week and that the children are well rested and ready to start the new term.

Miss Mellors will be teaching ‘Forest Schools’ this term, every Wednesday.  This involves children and their parents visiting the Forest Schools site on the school field and engaging in exciting woodland activities. These sessions have been very popular in the past. Please ask for details if you are interested.

You may also notice that the building work for our new Reception Classrooms will begin this term on the school field. We will ensure that there will be no disruption to the nursery but hope to allow the children to observe some of the building process through the nursery fence.

The new self service snack on a Wednesday has been very popular with the children. They have enjoyed pouring, spreading, cutting and of course eating the snack. Thank you for your contribution of £1.50 per term for baking and Wednesday’s snack.

This term the learning theme is Patterns!

The term is broken into weekly mini themes…

Week 1 – Music and dance patterns

Week 2 – Shape patterns

Week 3 – Patterns all around us

Week 4 – Story patterns

Week 5 – Patterns in nature
