 Autumn 1 

The children have made a great start to school and settled in really well. This half term our topic is 'Magical Me!' this is a great topic to start with as it lets the children explore how fantastic they are and also helps the adults in Early Years get to know them. We will be covering areas such as Family, Our Senses, Our Cultures and Beliefs and much more. Thank you to everyone that has filled in the information sheets sent out at the beginning of term. These are really important to help with again, getting to know the children but also starting that ongoing assessment of the children to help them along their learning journey in Early Years. In Early Years we really encourage and appreciate the input of parents/ carers and if you have any ideas that fit into our topic or know of any special interests your child may have please let your child's key person know.
