Things to Remember

Goody Bear might come to stay with you for the week end.  If he comes to your house please encourage your child to look after him and add to his diary.

PE Kits can be kept in school.  PE will be on a Wednesday.

Books are changed on a Friday and can stay at home for the week to enable your child to become familar with the book they have chosen and begin to retell it themselves.

Our Outdoor Learning environment is used every day in all weather.  Please send your child with a warm waterproof coat and appropriate  footwear.

PLEASE READ OUR NEWSLETTER FOR INFORMATION ABOUT THIS HALF TERM

Religious Education- The Way, The Truth and The Life

This half term we are learning all about the church.  The children will begin to understand that we are part of the church and the church is the family of God.  We will learn that the church is a holy place where we are all welcome.

Please talk to your child about their Baptism, explaining how this was the day that they became part of God's family. 

If you have any photographs of your children in church for any celebrations we would love to share them in Nursery.   

Our Visit to Church

Father Peter welcomed us into church.  We sang a special song, 'Jesus loves the little children' and we listened to a Bible story.
