Our topic this half term is...
"Down on the Farm"
Our main text is Farmer Duck. We will retell this story using a story map and begin to innovate it by changing characters in the story. Look out for it coming home for us to retell as part of homework.
We will also explore a range of non-fiction books about the farm and farm animals.
We have a busy half term ahead. Watch this space for progress of our planting projects!

Carnival Day (Article 30)
On Tuesday 27th February 2018 we had a Carnival Day in Early Years. We made carnival masks, headbands, necklaces, bracelets and instruments. We danced to carnival music in the hall and to end the day we had a carnival parade around school.
On Monday 5th February Reception children visited the Louisa Centre in Stanley to take part in a multi skills Jack and the Beanstalk session. It was fantastic and we were all tired out afterwards!

Miss Cooke's class 25th January and 8th February 2018
Parents and carers were invited to a 'Whatever Next' themed workshop in January (Article 5). This was based on our text for this half term and started with the children performing the story. We then took part in a range of activities including painting rockets, drawing what we might see from a rocket and acting out the story. On the 8th and 9th of February parents and carers were invited to a love themed workshop to take part in Valentine activities.
Take a look at the photos below.
Every Friday morning we take part in a forest school session with Veronica from Real Adventure Through Sport. We take art in lots of activities all relates to a topic. This half term the topic is based around the story 'Ridiculous' which is about a tortoise named Shelly. We are exploring tools and learning how to use them safely (Article 19).
Take a look at the photos below to see what we have been up to.
