A fabulous half term!

We have had a really busy half term learning about People Who Help Us in school and the community. We loved having the police car and motorbike in and were really lucky to actually sit in these vehicles and press the sirens and lights. We learnt a lot from PC Blum and PC Sawyer about how they help people. Next came the fire engine where we met Dan Trump and his crew. We were able to sit in the fire engine and spend time looking at all the equipment and how they use this in a variety of different rescue situations. We asked lots of questions to find out more information. On Thursday this week we are having a visit from a paramedic and ambulance to learn more about this service. We are really lucky to have all these visits from these emergency services, and the children have been very been very motivated about this topic. They have created some fabulous paintings, brilliant creative writing and enjoyed lots of role play experiences.

Our outside area plans are developing all the time. Thank you for all the donations of toys, the children are already enjoying using these.

Lots of exciting activities are planned for after half term including learning about Chinese New Year, New life with a visit from Miller’s Ark Farm, and our trip to Sainsbury’s with our buddies. If you think you may like to help on this trip please ask at the office now for a DBS form so we can process this before we are going.

Please ensure your child has a full PE kit all week in school. Your child need shorts for indoor PE and Joggers and jumpers for outside. On occasion we have to change inside for outside due to other year group commitments and the weather, therefore it is essential your child has a fully labelled complete set of PE kit. We do not have enough spares to lend everyone. Thank you!

Thank you for continued support
