Our Learning Journey
Here in Early Years we use the outdoors whatever the weather. We ensure that the staff and children are all wrapped up and dressed for the weather then explore the great outdoors. We used short sessions to investigate the environment and create our own snow sculpture.
Chinese New Year Physical Education
We celebrated Chinese New Year with our PE session in the hall. We took turns completing ribbon dancing, dragon dancing and using our musical eggs.
We were able to experience Ash Wednesday through a liturgy in the hall and receiving the ashes during a prayer time in class.

We had a lovely visit to the library to celebrate Winnie the Pooh day. We shared stories and rhymes with the parents that joined us.

Some of the children were very lucky to have the Family Learning Team come into school to offer a 'Fun with the Gruffalo' workshop, Some of our family members came to join us too.
The Reception children have been to visit Meir Library to share stories with our friends, parents and grandparents.
The children each received a free book to take home and enjoy.

Each group (Nemos or Dorys) have a prayer leader that leads us in prayer, this changes each week.
The Early Years children have been looking at pictures of role play areas to decide what they would like to learn next half term. Watch this space for more.
