Topic This Year

All our children’s learning is tailor made to suit them, where they are at a specific time so we can only really give a brief idea of what we will look at over the next year.

But we also think it is really nice for our children to learn about the world they live in, each other’s interests and go on lots of fun trips. So to give our parents a bit of a heads up as to what we will be doing, some of the books we might be using and some of the trips we will be hoping to go on through the year. We have written out a brief copy of our long term plan which we start from at the beginning of each year.

Each term is divided into two sections split by a half term and so we have two themes which loosely tie into the other for each half term.
