PE day: Tuesday

In Early Years we plan and learn through the children’s interests. Sometimes an interest may run for a week some may be much longer. Throughout the year we may look into certain aspects in our world when it is relevant such as the Seasons, Traditions and Celebrations that happen across the world and in our community.

Sian (resident actor) is working with Reception on Tuesday’s where she will be focusing on the Owl Babies story for the beginning of Autumn 2.

Soon we will be learning how to use the balance bikes and trikes in the outdoor area. We will be promoting Antibullying Week in November. Leading up to Christmas we will be learning the importance of the Nativity story and journeying through Advent with the children.
