Welcome back to Term 2!
We hope that you have had a lovely half term break. We look forward to hearing about what you did and where you went. Did you go pumpkin picking or go on an Autumn walk? Perhaps you went splashing in puddles or spent time with family. Whatever you did, we hope that you are ready for a busy term ahead!
Colours of Christmas
We explored the meaning of different colours of Christmas. We opened special boxes to reveal objects inside. We then found out what these objects represented and how they help us to understand more about the meaning of Christmas.
This week we explored what happens when we mix two primary colours together. We learned a new technique to ensure our brushes are clean when colour mixing: Swish Wipe Dab
Linking our learning to our Forest School session, we made mud paint and observed the texture of the mud when we began and as we added washing up liquid and paint.
Many children and adults are unsure of when unkind behaviour crosses the line and is bullying. Please see below for the Anti-bullying Alliance's definition of what bullying is.
We have been learning about what bullying is and what we can do if it happens to us or someone we know.
We began the week by wearing odd socks to demonstrate that we are all different and that it is ok to be different. We then designed our own odd socks.
Please remember that if you have any concerns, do come and speak to your class teacher.
Nursery Rhyme Day
WOW! How fabulous were the Wrens? We hope that you all enjoyed the performances. It really is wonderful to see just how far the children have come in such a short period of time since starting school in September.
Thank you to everyone for making the nursery rhyme day such a success!

We have been exploring different ways of travelling and changing direction.
Autumn Welly Walk
We went on an Autumn welly walk to observe what changes are happening in the outside world. We noticed the changing colours of the leaves; the trees losing their leaves; conkers and their spikey cases and a pheasant.
European Day of Languages
Thank you for the fabulous effort made by everyone for European Day of Languages on Friday. The children certainly added some colour to the class! Here we are learning the Polka.
