Teacher: Mrs Dabo
Welcome to Otter Class!
The children have settled in well to their new classroom, showing full enthusiasm for their new learning and proving to be excellent at tidying away!
This half term, our topic is The Enchanted Woodland.
We will go out to explore our new outdoor area and the school grounds, looking for creatures big and small, and maybe even some fairies!
We will make friends with trees and think about what makes each one unique, recording our findings in our own special booklet.
We will gather natural objects to help us make our own natural sculptures inspired by Andy Goldsworthy.
Finally, we will think about our responsibility for protecting wildlife and have the opportunity to learn from an expert who works with wild animals daily.
To support our learning you could:
- Take us to a nearby woodland area to explore
- Help us look for creatures in the garden
- Read lots of woodland stories with us
PE Days: Monday and Wednesday
Please ensure full PE kit is in school every day and remember to remove earrings on PE days.
Rocket Readers: Wednesdays
