"Why does the moon come out in the day time?" one of our inquisitive little learners asked during his outdoor learning play. Wow! So, together we shared our thoughts and used the internet to research the answer! Can you tell your grown up what you found out?

Our new and exciting morning routine for our wonderful independent learners!

We are so proud of our super learners and how amazingly well they have settled in to their new morning routine! Each morning for twenty minutes, straight after registration, the children take part in an independent learning job in small groups.

These very important jobs include: 1:1 reading with a teacher, a creative 'Let's Write' activity, phonics learning, practising their word walls and a practical maths game.

 

Can your child tell you which polar animal group they belong to? Can they share with you what they have been learning in their new groups each morning?
