This half term the children will be learning all about farm animals (see topic web). They will also be finding out about things that grow, including both plants and animals and we are very excited to be having some eggs that will be hatching in the Foundation Unit.   If you would like to support your child at home, you could explore the natural environment by looking closely at animals including minibeasts. Also, whilst you are out and about you could look for the signs of growth on the trees and in the garden and discuss these with your child. We will be supporting this topic by taking a trip to White Post Farm to explore the farm animals. We will also be taking a tractor ride.  How exciting! The morning children will go on Wednesday 8th May and the afternoon children will go on Thursday 9th May. Please see your child’s key worker for more details.


Can we please encourage you to keep reading with your child at home.  We also really appreciate it if you could write a comment in the reading diary, however short this may be.  

 Thank you for your continued support.

Welcome to F1

 Welcome back to the Summer Term!


We are pleased that so many of you enjoyed the Easter bonnet parade last half term and once again, thank you for all your support. It was obvious a great deal of time and effort had gone into making the Easter bonnets look so fantastic.  We are so proud of how the children performed in front of such a big audience.
