With Mrs Forrest & Mrs Naylor
We are looking forward to learning and exploring this half term with you.
Please email any questions to email@example.com
Children have access to the outdoors daily so will need to wear clothes appropriate for the weather. Our forest school day is Wednesday. Please send your child in old clothes every Wednesday (we will provide the wellies) as we will be doing some outdoor activities in our forest school area and it can get very muddy!

Summer term What we be learning
This half term we are going to be exploring the theme Come Outside. Our key question is "I wonder what is outside of our classroom?"
Children will be learning about the world around them. The children will be exploring the things they can see from our windows, playgrounds and field. Children will be encouraged to use their 5 senses to explore their environment. We will then look at other places that interest the children.
Weekly forest school will continue to take place on a Wednesday with Mrs Hackett. Children will be using this area to explore their natural environment. We will be using the mud slip and slide, rope tyres and mud kitchen as well as exploring free play in the areas.
Our key texts are Shark in the Park - By Nick Sharrett and Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell
Our key vocabulary is : 5 senses , discover, investigate, look and find.
Vocabulary will be extended further as we explore what we discover.
