Autumn Fun at Arley Arboretum


Today the children from Robins and Swallows Classes visited Arley Arboretum to look for signs of Autumn and Winter. It was a lovely frosty, sunny morning and the children had lots of fun collecting autumn leaves, exploring the arboretum and playing on the park and in the maze. Here are a selection of photographs from our visit.

A Great First Half Term!


We have had a lovely first half term at school exploring our topic of 'All About Me' and also sub-topics on 'Harvest' and 'Autumn'. The children have settled in brilliantly and have been really enthusiastic to learn. We are now really excited to begin the new half term and to take part in lots of exciting activities surrounding our new topic - 'Transport and Journeys'. We will also explore a few sub-topics including, 'Bonfire Night', 'Autumn and Winter', and 'Advent and Christmas'.


Here are a few more photographs from our first half term at school!

Our First Few Weeks...


Robins Class have had a fabulous first few weeks at school. They have enjoyed exploring our Early Years Area, including the classroom, outdoor area and our 'Creation Station'. The children have listened to stories, joined in with counting and number work activities, learnt about rhyme and alliteration, and they have begun to learn their letters and sounds. They are thoroughly enjoying our topic 'All About Me', especially creating self-portraits and looking at photographs of themselves when they were babies! The children have also had lots of fun in our PE lessons, including a lesson taught by a coach from Kidderminster Harriers. Here are some photographs of the children during their first few weeks at school.
