Spring term

It is wonderful to have the children back after a well earned rest. The children are making so much progress and have brilliant bonds with both adults and other children in the class. This term we will continue to plan around the children's interests and needs and so far we have had some fantastic mini topics on "Jungle animals" and "People who help us" The children have particularly enjoyed our police station role play area where they have been investigating crimes, taking fingerprints and making wanted posters.
