Our PE day is Fridays (morning). However, please ensure PE kits (with all items clearly named) are in school every day as we may go out for additional sessions throughout the week.


Our learning is centred around mini topics, usually based on class books that we are sharing within class as well as enveloping the interests of our children.

Initially, we will be using the topic 'All about me' so that children can develop confidence in sharing what is most familiar, their families, and talk about themselves and their interests, celebrating themselves and others' in a reassuring environment as well as exploring feelings and emotions, differences and similarities.

Week beginning 7th October 2019

Food, glorious food!! Merlin have been busy cooking up a storm today. We have made some delicious apple and blackberry crumbles and discovering that cooking with our family and friends is a great way to experience lots of different textures, tastes and smells as well as practice using a whole range of skills. Next stop.... Great British bake-off! 👨‍🍳👩‍🍳

Week commencing 2nd September 2019


Merlin have had a successful first PE session this afternoon. We used our bodies to move like a variety of different animals from prowling and leaping like a tiger to steadily trudging like an elephant. 😀
