This term, our topic is called 'Ice World' and the children will be learning about the Artic and Antarctica; exploring the animals found in these 2 continents. As part of this topic we will be learning about penguins and will be producing writing, poetry and art around these animals. The children in Reception will be visiting Marwell Zoo to observe penguins and we will be exploring what conditions are like for these animals in the wild.
Parents are encouraged to share a book with their child every night. Making it part of the bedtime routine can be a good way to end the day!
Home Learning Project
Your child's home learning project is to work with parents/carers to produce a 3D animal from one of the above continents. These could be produced as a collage, model, papier-mâché or a sculpture. The following animals live in these continents:
Reindeer Polar Bears Artic Fox Narwhal Walrus Seal Moose Orca Snowy Owl Penguins Whales Albatrosses Seals
Please bring your child's finished Artic animal into school on, or before, Wednesday 25th January 2017. We will display all of the work in the Early Year's Unit so that we can celebrate each other's work.
The children in Reception will be given a free P.E kit and bag. This must be kept in school on your child's peg and be taken home each half term to be washed.
P.E will take place on Monday and Friday each week. Nursery children will only be required to remove shoes and socks and is on the same days.
We will provide children with a healthy snack at the snack bar each session. There is usually a range of different fruit available for the children to choose from.
The children are entitled to a free school dinner every day. They have three different options to choose from, along with a dessert and a salad bar is available daily. A copy of the menu is available from the school office. If your child does prefer a packed lunch, they are able to bring this instead.
