Term 3

Welcome back to Term 3. Happy new year! It has been lovely to see everybody again! 

We have made a great start back and have been enjoying all of our new topics. Our topic this term is called Wibbly Wobbly Wheels and we are looking at the history of transport and exploring wheels and axles.

 Our PE days are Thursday and Friday. On Thursday afternoon we are outside and on Friday afternoon it is inside. Make sure you are not wearing earrings on this day and that long hair is tied back please. 


Remember to bring in your reading folder and your water bottle everyday and your packed lunch if you are having one. If you are bringing in a snack for morning play this can be put in your child's reading folder.
