Welcome to Wren Class!
We are starting off the term with some celebrations! We are going to be finding out about Diwali and Bonfire Night. We will be making some paper lanterns to hang around the classroom and having a go at creating some colourful firework pictures. The Role Play Area has turned into a Post Office. The children have been busy writing cards, posting letters and weighing parcels. The Jolly Post Office will become the Jolly Christmas Post Office in December, where we will be writing Christmas cards and posting our Christmas lists.
We are all looking forward to an exciting term filled with sparkles and smiles
The first term at school is an important one. It is a term for familiarisation, getting to grips with some of the basic school routines and working on building friendships. We are going to have lots of fun getting to know each other and learning all about our school.
Alongside getting to know our school we are going to be looking at the story of Elmer by David McKee. We will be doing lots of colourful art work and talking about feelings linked to the story. We will explore life in a jungle and find out some facts about elephants. We are also going to explore colours and have a go at mixing paint to see what new colours we can create. We will look at the work of the artist Kandinsky and have a go at creating our own colourful masterpieces!
We are looking forward to a busy and exciting first term
