Last term we had a live author in our school. His name? Andrew Weale. He visited the nursery and read two of his books to the children. They listened and participated with great enthusiasm.
We want to foster a love of books in our children so please read to them each night and support our reading scheme.
Our RE topic for the first half of the Autumn term was Beginnings.The children learnt about themselves, their families and their new school within the context of the wider Parish and Church.
The IPC topic was Family and Friends. During the course of the theme the children learnt about the similarities and differences between each other.They learnt a little about the family backgrounds of their classmates, but mainly they learnt about being part of a new group of people and making new relationships.
