Our Learning

Why do squirrels hide their nuts?

This half term, we’ll visit a woodland to hunt for autumnal treasures. Back in the classroom, we’ll watch what happens when frozen objects melt. Getting creative, we’ll press leaves into clay to make beautiful impressions, and we’ll trace the patterns on leaves. Things could get messy in our mud kitchen when we use different tools to dig, mix and pour. We’ll also enjoy making marks in the mud. Our maths skills will help us to count conkers, and we’ll use them to make different numbers. Using sticks, we’ll explore lengths and use the language of size. It will be lovely to curl up in the reading corner to enjoy autumnal stories and poetry.

The Spinney and PE

Every Monday morning we will be visiting our wooded area - 'The Spinney' - to do some outdoor learning and exploring! This is a lovely opportunity for children to get hands-on with nature. 
Please ensure that children have wellies and come dressed in suitable outdoor clothing on this day. 



We have PE every Friday. Children will need to come to school dressed in their PE kits.
