A big welcome back to some of our children and families and a big welcome to those of you who have joined us this term.
The children have settled in well and are getting used to the environment and routines.
The Autumn Term has been busy so far, with more to come! Our topic of 'Chestnuts and Conkers' will provide plenty of opportunity to explore the season of Autumn in the wider learning environment with a morning in the Forest School area, bug hunting, bark rubbing and mud drawing with stick pencils. In addition we will be creating different pieces of artwork from pine cone rolling in paint to printing with Japonica fruit. Examples of these will be displayed outside the classroom.
During the second half of the term will will be focusing on light and dark in our topic 'Who turned out the light!" This will provide the opportunity to explore the length of the day, shadows, festivals including Diwali and Christmas in addition to talking about people who work at night and the different jobs and roles they have.
