Hello and welcome back to our last half term this year!

This half term is 8 weeks long! We thought it would keep the work more exciting if we split the half term into two and look at two different books.

In our first four weeks we will be looking at the book, What the Ladybird Heard 

For our last 4 weeks, we will be looking at the book, Superworm!

We have kept our weekly timetable exactly the same as we wanted to keep it consistent for you and your child. As always, we will email you on Monday morning with the weekly timetable and any attachments you will need that week. 

We were blown away by your hard work and dedication last half term and we really hope this continues this half term. We know it can be hard at home but with the rules of lock down beginning to lift a little, we hope families begin to feel a positive difference. 

As always, we are here if you need us - please send an email and we will reply!

They also painted some of the Big Bad Wolf!






Here are some of the pictures of children inspired by World Book Day!

The children baked some butterscotch cookies as well! They were learning to take turns and count how many chocolate chips were placed on a cookie.









This week in Fig Class,  we have been listening and retelling the story..."Mr Wolf's Pancakes"  and also learned about the Russian Artist/Poet Wassily Kandinsky. His work consisted of squares and circles.
