Wow! What a fantastic Spring Term we have had. The children in Cygnets class have settled incredibly well - making friends, growing in confidence and challenging themselves with new learning each day. This term we worked hard to settled back into our routines and re-establish relationships after the National Lockdown. The children loved our topic on space and did an amazing job looking after Zoik, our little alien friend. Although we were all sad to see him leave, we hope he'll return again soon.
At forest school we have built fires, made bread and helped to look after the environment. Within the classroom have learnt all the Phase 2 and 3 phonics sounds and continue to practice our segmenting and blending through reading and activities.
Cygnets class have showed a particular interest in our new potion making area! They have enjoyed mixing, tipping, pouring and experimenting with different smells and textures.
Well done Cygnets
