Our topic - Ancient Maya Civilisation

We have been learning more about the ancient civilisation by getting hands-on with some artefacts. The items included pottery statues, a terracotta calendar and even a carved wooden hot chocolate whisk!

Happy New Year!

As we start a new year and a new term, please see the letter below outlining some of the new topics coming up, along with some reminders and details of practical arrangements that will help your child's learning experience run smoothly. 

Wellbeing Day 2023

This year, as part of looking after our wellbeing, we spent a day enjoying lots of activities to make us feel good.

We started the day by writing some of our best jokes in our handwriting lesson. The day then continued with other activities such as Yoga and a health walk along the Greenway - where we had a den-building competition! The day finished back in the classroom with an informative session from a nutrition expert who taught us about healthy foods to eat - we even got to sample some of them too!

During the food tasting, one child said "I didn't realise that healthy could taste so nice!"
