Understanding the world The theme for our first week back is E-safety where we will be discussing how to stay safe online. Our theme for the rest of the half term is ‘Traditional Tales’. We will be having a go at making Gingerbread Men and porridge where we will look at what happens when we combine different ingredients.
Expressive Arts and Design The children will be encouraged to use a range of resources to make independent creations. We will be setting up an outdoor stage for the children to practise and perform their own songs and dances.
Personal and Social Development We will be working with the children on how they need to work together and find their own solutions to problems. We will be talking about taking care of others.
