Welcome Little Explorers!

Welcome to a new school term!

Hello to all of our new starters!

We have both F1 and F2 children learning together again and our collective class name is 

The 'Little Explorers'!

This theme is in line with the rest of the school who have taken inspirational people as their class names.

We will be finding out all about lots of inspirational explorers and people who were the first ones to do new things.

For instance Maria Montessori. She was the lady responsible for ensuring children today can learn through play. 

Our main topic for this half-term is "Lets Explore"

In the Let’s Explore project, your child will explore their class environment and school grounds so that they feel settled and happy in their new surroundings. They will learn about the local environment and find out about places they have visited on holiday. They will look at and create maps for journeys.

Supporting your child at home

  • Use Google Earth to explore the locality.
  • Go on a walk around your local community and talk about the things that you see.
  • Encourage your child to talk about the activities they enjoy doing at school.

Here are the areas of learning we will be visiting whilst engaged in this topic.
