‘When I Grow Up…’ is our theme this term and we launched the term with the children coming in dressed up as what job they might want to do when they are older! We’re continuing to learn about lots of different careers this term with visits from parents talking about their jobs – please do let us know if you’d like to share your expertise with the children. Part of thinking about growing up involves us preparing for the children’s transition to Year One so there will be opportunities for the children to get to know their new teachers and classmates.
Our first week back is also RSE Week where we will be exploring the themes of friendships and families and celebrating all the wonderful different families around us. Friendship remains an important part of our PSED learning this term, as we will be supporting the children in making lots of new friendships as they prepare to move to their Year One classes. There will also be lots of opportunities for the children to visit the Year One classrooms and meet the Year One teaching team throughout the term.
The second week of term is our whole school Music Week where the children will listen to lots of different types of music, explore instruments and create their own instruments and join in with their first House Event. The children will also be taking part in a Peter and the Wolf workshop with a string quintet, Toscana Strings.
Sports Week takes place in week 6, including our Sports Day which will be held at Clifton College’s New Field – more details will be emailed to you nearer the time. During the week the children will have the opportunity to try a wide variety of sporting activities with a range of specialists.
