Why not try some of these moves at home? They're great for improving core strength and stability. We did egg rolls and log/pencil rolls.

Our constructed role play area... we have been doing lots of thinking about who to be, what to build, how to share our ideas...

We've made up our own

Please could you make sure your child's forest school clothes are in school on Wednesdays, we now have a mud kitchen so we need to keep ourselves clean!

We will send them home if they get wet or muddy. Please return for the following Wednesday.  We are going to be going in smaller groups so your child may not go every week this term.

People who help us- Eloise's dad came to tell us about being a firefighter.

More things we have been getting up to.

This is the new term letter.

Our P.E day is Friday. We have time in the hall after assembly, but sometimes this can change if other things are happening school, so PLEASE try to have your P.E kits in school everyday (they can stay hanging up on your child's peg!). We will send them home each half term for a wash!

Make sure ALL of your child's clothes are named, P.E kits, jumpers, EVERYTHING (even socks, tights and plimsolls because you'll be surprised how they lose their owners!). We make every effort to ensure each child has the correct belongings at the end of each P.E session.
