Welcome back to Term 4!
Where did the last term go? We had such a busy term learning all about 'people who help us' in Term 3. We were very lucky to have a real firefighter visit us here at school. We had the chance to dress up as firefighters too! We also had a visit from Nurse Patience; we enjoyed asking her lots of questions about her job and how she helps people to get better.
In Term 4 we will be learning more about the animals which Dave and Chloe bring from their farm; last term we especially enjoyed walking the goats and alpacas around the school field.
Our topic this term is all about transport and vehicles. We will be thinking about our own experiences related to travel and our stories will reflect our topic learning also.
At the end of term Resource base children will be in school on the last day (Thursday 29th) and a trip to Slimbridge wetlands wildlife reserve has been organised... don't forget to pack the children's wellies that day!.
For more information about what the children will be working on in Japan class across the term please visit the 'curriculum information' section of our class page. If your child has any special interests or equally if you have any ideas to share which could enhance our topic please share your ideas with a member of Japan class staff.
We have lots of exciting things happening in Japan class during Term 2. We are very lucky to be having the 'Singing Hand' ladies in during mid November to share with us a fantastic interactive singing and signing session. We thoroughly enjoyed it last year and look forward to inviting parents along at the end of the session to join in with us! We will inform you closer o the time of dates and times of the session.
Next week (W/C 6th November) we are going to be saying hello to Harold the Giraffe again when the Life Van arrives in school. We will be learning all about how to keep our bodies healthy and fit.
Please Note that until further notice we will be going swimming every Monday so please ensure that your child has their named swimming kit in school each week.
