Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No.....it's Bookman!!
We had a very exciting visit this week from our very own school super hero, Bookman. He came in to introduce himself and set us a challenge to read 12 times over the Christmas break. He even sent us home with chocolate treats to enjoy while we read. Please see the Reading Challenge letter for more information.
We visited Nene Park for a fun packed day filled with activities linked to our learning about traditional tales. We went on a treasure hunt to find the ending to a story, made stick houses for the 3 pigs and scavenged for materials to keep Goldilocks' porridge warm. Despite the rain, we all had a fantastic time and even enjoyed our ride on the bus! Thank you to our grown ups for making sure we all had the right clothes to keep us warm and dry.
We have started our Autumn topic this week and have had lots of learning about what festivals happen during these months and what happens to the weather and nature. The children have been outside collecting conkers and sticks for our unit (and no doubt bringing them home too!). There has been lots of stick painting, conker investigating and leaf rubbing.
We are also starting to look at our Literacy topic book of Percy the Park Keeper by Nick Butterworth which is full of woodland creatures, including our very own Hedgehog and Squirrel!
Thank you to all those parents who have handed in their Tapestry letters.

Later on in the half term we will be learning a variety of traditional tales and will be having a traditional tale trip to Nene Park (date to follow in a letter soon)
Please do not worry about PE kits for the first term, we will start off with just taking shoes and socks off then progress to changing into kits after Christmas.
