Our topic is Autumn.
This term we are working on establishing our routines and getting used to being in school.
 
Our topic work will focus on the seasons and this term we will be looking closely at the changes Autumn brings and what this means for us. Autumn is a wonderful season for children because it has some of the most dramatic changes within the immediate environment. We will look at the weather and what happens to certain animals and how some trees lose their leaves. We would love to see any treasures that have been found on glorious woodland walks!! Happy exploring!!    
 
Spring Term
Our learning continues in the theme of the seasons and we will be looking at how Autumn moves into Winter. We will be focusing on winter weather and sharing winter themed stories and poems to develop our literacy skills.
We will be creating winter art using different media. Expect to see lots of snowmen, snowflakes and all things sparkly.
We will also be thinking about what happens to the birds and animals during winter?
 

 

 

 
 Alongside our topic we will be learning new sounds most days, Each child has their own wallet of sound cards.  Please make sure these are brought into school each day in the children's book bags. Thank you
Welcome To Our School
 
 
We are looking forward to getting to know your children and helping them settle into full-time education. We deliver a curriculum that is immersed in play-based pedagogy with lots of hands-on activities. 
Our class starts school at 8.45- please drop your child off by the side gate where a member of staff will greet them. We realise that it might be hard for our youngest children to leave you so will do our best to assist in an appropriate manner to make this transition as easy as we can. 
End of the day collection is at the same side gate and we ask that you arrive promptly at 3.10.
 
On Mondays our class has PE lessons and we ask that your child wears their PE kit
On Wednesdays we have swimming lessons at Penzance Leisure Centre. Please provide your child with clearly labelled swimming kit (costume/trunks, towel, goggles). There is £3 contribution towards the transport, which can be paid via ParentMail or cash if necessary. 
Please make sure all of your child's school uniform is clearly labelled
 
Please remember to use
Teach Your Monster to Read games
