It is a very busy time, and we have lots of exciting activities to do.
Our topic for this half-term is Scrumptious. This enables the children to learn about a range of different types of food, understand how to keep healthy with a balanced diet and learn about the different countries our food comes from. They will also have the opportunity to cook food and see how materials change during the process.
If you have anything of interest that we could use this half term, please send it in. Thanks
Muddy Monday and PE will continue to be on a Monday. We would like all children to wear joggers and trainers, and NO jewellery please! Please continue to send in spare socks and warm clothes under their waterproofs. Thank you.

Lots of other activities
Our role play area is a gingerbread man café .
We will be designing and making our own pizzas and decorating gingerbread men.
We will be learning lots about Wales and preparing for our Eisteddfod .
As always, we are going to be very busy!
We will be doing lots of activities linked to our topic of Scrumptious, encouraging the children to ask a range of questions to develop their knowledge and understanding. In the role play area we will have opportunities to write shopping lists and design menus and party invitations. The children will continue to have daily opportunities to recognise and write their names independently as well as using the Welsh language across the range of experiences.
We will do speech and language groups each week
We will also continue to use the jolly phonics to develop your child’s understanding of letter sounds and start to focus on using those sounds to build words.
Please remember to practise these at home too!
Thanks for all your co-operation.
