Welcome back after our break. We can't believe we are in our final half term with you. This term we will be studying a new topic 'Under the Sea' - I feel a song coming on!

Under the sea
Under the sea
Darling it's better
Down where it's wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin'
Full time to floatin'
Under the sea

Welcome back after the Easter break. This half-term we are studying a new topic, 'Traditional Tales.'

We enjoyed finding out about the Native American story of Fire. We decided to have a campfire where we sang songs and told stories. We even pretended to toast marshmallows-delicious!

On Friday 4th May, we were lucky to have a visit from our artist friend, Ingrid. We had a fabulous afternoon outside in the sunshine making prints and rubbings.

 

 

 

 

 

We would like to notify parents and carers of a timetable change for RSW. PE is changing from Wednesday to Friday afternoons and this will take effect from the week beginning 5th March.
Our Stay and Play session is on Thursday 26th April this half term. Come and see all the exciting things we have been doing.

As part of our topic on 'People who help us', we met a paramedic and a firefighter. We really enjoyed finding out how they help to keep us safe.

  

During our work on 'Transport', we made paper planes. We really enjoyed flying our paper planes to see whose could fly the furthest.

 In the Autumn term we learnt about ourselves in our topic 'Marvellous Me.' We found out about keeping safe in school and how to stop germs spreading. Here is our handwashing song. (Sing to the tune of Row, row, row your boat.)

 

Wash, wash, wash your hands

Wash them nice and clean.

Wash the top, the bottom and

The fingers in between.

 

 

Our PE day is on Wednesday, please make sure your child's PE kit is in school so that they can enjoy learning to move in different ways. smiley

This half term we have enjoyed our topic 'Into the Woods'. We have learnt the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen and 'The Gruffalo' by Julia Donaldson. We have also enjoyed finding out about Christmas. The Elf has appeared and is watching our every move. No-one wants to go on the 'naughty' list!

 

We hope you enjoyed our Christmas Performance of 'Aliens Love Christmas' as much as we did. Thank you to everyone who came and provided the lovely costumes.

Don't forget our second Stay and Play session on Thursday morning. Please stay and enjoy some activities with your child, it will also be an opportunity to look at the work they have been doing in school this term.

We will be visiting Belhus Park Chapel on Friday 15th December. Please make sure your child is wearing a coat and appropriate footwear for the weather conditions. 

On Friday 8th September, we visited the Library Bus. We very much enjoyed reading the books and can't wait to go back.
