Wow, we have already arrived at our fifth term, where has the time gone?
The children are relishing our new topic 'Our Living World'! They are demonstrating fantastic knowledge of the world and the living things in it. Many of the children have already gone to the amazing Powell museum at Quex Park and soon we will be going to Wingham Wildlife Park to learn even more about animals!
The children are showing fantastic learning powers in our continuously developing environment. This includes the book corners, role play areas, outdoors, forest school, writing areas and much more. Examples of this can be seen in the photos below.
Towards the end of term 5 we went to Wingham Wildlife Park and had a fantastic time.
Our topic this term is 'Mind, Body and Soul'.
This allows us to develop our understanding of well being, heath, cultural identity, spiritual and religious beliefs and much more.
