Gallery

This gallery is intended to give you a snapshot of topics and events celebrated during each month.  We provide updates on our closed Facebook page for parents including lots of photos and whiteboard photos outlining daily activities.

We have had lots of fun learning about a variety of topics including; All About Me, Colours, Chinese New Year, Autumn, Harvest, Diwali, Fireworks, Animals, Remembrance Day, Transport and Christmas and we try to link each topic to a book for example: The Very Hungry Caterpillar or The Gruffalo. We have “You Choose” Literacy and Numeracy trollies out every day where children can choose their own activities other than what has been selected for them as we set up in the morning.
