Striving for excellence together

Hello! Welcome back Rabbits! 

Term 2 promises to be an exciting one! Continuing our ‘stick’ theme, we will read the story of ‘Stickman’ by Julia Donaldson. Stickman goes on a seasonal adventure which will lead us neatly into Christmas and help us to extend our learning about the seasons as part of our Science curriculum. We will start to rehearse for our Christmas show and plan a trip to a local church. In Maths, we will learn about capacity and volume and revisit our learning about measuring weight, height and length. We hope the children will be able to use these skills to ensure Santa and the reindeer get exactly the right amount of food and drink on Christmas Eve! In Literacy we will continue working hard in our phonics sessions and the children will get a chance to use their writing skills to write postcards, letters to Santa and labels in our Christmas workshop role-play area. We will also welcome a visit from a local friend who will talk about how Christmas used to be celebrated. The children should enjoy exploring history through an event which is so important to them. 

This is just for starters! We will update the website again soon and in the meantime, please keep in touch with our adventures on Classroom Dojo!
