Week Beginning 3rd July 2017 - Health and Sports Week

This week we had lots of fun celebrating Health and Sports! We have taken part in an 'enterprise morning' making and selling fruit pots with our friends in Year 2. We have learnt about the importance of healthy eating, exercising and washing our hands! On Friday we had Sports Day. Here are some pictures from our fun week in school.

Littlefoot Team Building

Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely Easter break and are looking forward to the summer! This half term, our Cornerstones topic is 'Why do ladybirds have spots?'. We will be learning all about different minibeasts. We have already started investigating in our Minibeast Laboratory and the children have written some fantastic descriptions of their favourite minibeasts! Can you spot any minibeasts when you are out and about? 


We will also be learning about 3D shapes and their properties. The children have been on a shape hunt to see what 3D shapes they could find around school. What 3D shapes can you find at home?

Our visit to China Town

Welcome back, we hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year!
