What a fantastic time we all had on Sports Day! We were all so proud of the Year R children for their team work, perseverance and resilience on their very first Sports Day. It was wonderful to end the term on such a high. Thank you for coming along to support your child and their colour teams, the atmosphere was amazing!
We are continuing on our hot air balloon adventure this term. We are currently in Tanzania in the Serengeti National Park and we are going to remain here and travel further into Kenya for one more week, learning more about life in Africa and the similarities and differences between Africa and the UK.
We are looking forward to continuing on our journey around the world over the coming weeks and also look forward to other special events along the way; our trip to Bucklebury Farm Park, a mock wedding when we are learning about ‘Special Clothes’ in RE, and a buddy picnic to finish off the term.
You can find out more about our topic and other learning for this half term in our newsletter here.
During this term we will also be preparing the children for the changes which will come in September when they move up to Year 1. Please be assured that we will approach this very carefully and ensure that all the children are prepared as best as we can. We will be arranging story swaps with the Year 1 staff soon, and they will visit the classrooms for some of these too. We will let you know via the Walk and Talk board when these have happened so you can follow it up at home that day.
