This half term is very short so our topic, based around plants and growing, will span the half term break. We have given it a local focus but will also learn about plants and animals from other parts of the world.

All the Reception children walked to Dobbies. When we got there we found out about how vegetables grow from tiny seeds and we tasted some celery and cucumber too. We smelt vegetables as well, not many people liked the smell of leeks!. Then we had to put on an apron and some gloves and we planted some lettuce seed. We are going to take the pots home and see who can grow the biggest lettuces. Denise gave us some stickers and a certificate and said we were much better behaved than the bigger children who visit her.

It’s lovely to return to school to welcome back our Year 1 children and meet all the new Reception children and their parents/carers. We have only been back for a few days and already everyone seems to be settled in and learning the new routines quickly. It promises to be a very busy half term and a very exciting time for everyone. There are two hyperlinks below for newsletters, click on the relevant one for your child’s year group to find out about some of the activities we have planned for them.
Remember to call in and ask if you are worried or not sure about anything, we often find it is harder for parents to adjust to having their child at school for the first time than it is for the children!!
We look forward to meeting you all and welcome your continued support to help your children learn in these vital, early years at school.
