Our Spring Term theme is ‘Happily Ever After’ where we will be learning about fairy tales; both traditional and with a modern twist.  Our curriculum will be inspired by our Spring Bookshelf filled with exciting, high-quality texts.

The book we will be exploring first is ‘Foggy Foggy Forest’ by Nick Sharratt.

School Drivers in the Spring Term

Collaboration: Through our theme, we will share our own ideas and talk to children and adults about them.

Possibilities: As risk-takers we will be willing to ‘have a go’, have our own ideas and make links with our learning.

Respect: We will continue to start conversations and listen to what others say. We will be considerate to others.

Technology: We will use iPads to record seasonal changes within our local area. We will learn to use Beebots to help us with our learning. We will think and talk about the reasons why things happen or how things work.
