WHAT'S HAPPENING THIS TERM?
Athletics: This will form our sports focus for the first half of the term so please ensure your child has suitable running shoes and clothes.
Swimming: This will begin in the second half of the term, once the weather has warmed up and athletics has concluded. You will be notified of when to start sending togs to school.
Inquiry: We continue our focus on the arts this term, looking at performing arts like dance and visual arts like painting and sketching. Here is a snapshot of our learning so far!
Exploring how we can share our emotions with our bodies!
Library: Our library day is Friday. Please help your child to make sure that they have their library book back at school by Friday morning so they can choose a new one. We begin a focus on the arts this term. Bookbags are to be at school everyday.
Literacy: Throughout the term we will be unpacking a range of shared books and engaging in fun language experiences. We will be doing our usual guided reading and writing programmes, building on the skills we learnt last term.
