Happy World Book Day

We chose Winnie's Midnight Dragon as our class book.

Happy St David's Day!

Our trip to Caerphilly Mountain Range to celebrate the end of our topic 'Holes, Spaces and Hiding Places.'

We had a great day visiting the Badger Wood, Fairy Forest and toasted marshmallows on the fire!

We had a PJ party as part of our 'When I fall asleep' topic!

We made dream catchers!

We looked at the numbers and threaded our coloured wool in the correct order to see what shape appeared in the middle of our dream catcher! The dream catcher catches our bad dreams and traps them and lets our good dreams float through!

Our daily routine

We used the iPads to take photos go our day in school and our bedtime routine as part of our topic, 'When I fall Asleep' and then ordered the pictures.

Snacks - in line with the school's healthy eating policy, we will be providing the children with a healthy snack during the morning playtime.  The cost of this will be £1 per week, to be paid on a weekly basis every Friday.

Please enclose the money in a clearly marked envelope/money bag with your child's name and give it to Mrs Portelli on a Friday morning.  Many thanks.
