We wish your children every success in the year ahead. Please feel free to come and see us with any concerns that you may have.
We start by introducing children to all the new routines, welcoming any new children and establishing our ‘Golden Rules’. ‘The Jolly Postman’ is a great book by Janet and Allan Ahlberg and we will be incorporating writing and number work involving lots of the fairy tale characters from the story. Children will be looking at the work of artist Paul Klee and learn lots of geographical vocabulary and mapping skills.
We start the year with the arrival of a mysterious parcel containing straw, sticks and bricks which lead on to a fairy tale adventure with the Jolly Postman. A local historian will visit and to talk to us about the history of our village including the origins of the school. Later, we take the children on a tour of the village, including a stop at one of the churches to learn about its main features. We finally end the term by performing fabulous dances as part of our spectacular KS1 Nativity.
This topic will enable us to make the most of our woodland areas and learn about flowering plants and trees. We are planning to use natural outdoor materials to create music and art work and hopefully learn more outdoor skills with the Forest Schools Team.
