"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

This week we are learning

 Welcome back we are all delighted to see the children back in school for another term.

This Autumn term  September 2018

The children have been going in groups to the library. This is to help them become familiar with the library and learn how to scan the books they are borrowing  in and out. It is also to help them improve their reading skills.

 

(Summer One) This half term we have been learning a folk tale called The Chocolate Tree. We have been mapping out the text and identifying the key features.

(12.3.18) This week we celebrated World Book Day. The children came dressed up as their favourite characters and we enjoyed sharing a story together.

Spring 2 (26.2.18) This week we have been exploring the art work of Vincent Van Gogh. We learnt about his famous pictures The Sunflower and Starry Night. We also researched facts about the artist.

This is what we have been learning this week.

 It would be great if you can talk to your child about what they have been learning.
