This half term we have been learning all about families. We have also been reading 'Owl Babies'
We created cityscape pictures of Manchester.
We hope you have all had a lovely summer break. We are really looking forward to getting to know our new class and we know it is going to be a great start to the year with lots of exciting learning opportunities. Our primary aim over the next few weeks is to ensure that the children are happy to come to school, and that they feel safe and secure. We will be supporting those children who are new to the school in making new friends and feeling confident in their new environment.
Our topic this half term is Me and My Family. Through a range of activities the children will be learning about families, and similarities and differences between them. We will be talking about where in the world our families come from, and where we have visited.
