We hope that you have enjoyed your half term week! The children have told us all about their Halloween costumes and of the fireworks they have seen!
Moving into the second part of Autumn term, the children are really settled into our daily routine. We had a really exciting topic launch (Ahoy There!) which involved having a real life Hot Air Balloon on our school field! The children (and adults) were really excited to see the balloon being inflated with cold air and then move to an upright position using the heated air (which was quite noisy when close!) The pilots explained everything about Hot Air Balloons in detail to the children which they thoroughly enjoyed. Mrs Griffiths even had a ride in the basket (with the balloon tied down of course!)
As you will see from the topic web attached, we have many more exciting things planned for this term. The topic being "Ahoy There" is all about journeys and will cover parts of the science and geography curriculum. The children will have an opportunity to make a boat that we will be testing out on the lakes at Eastrop Park later on in the term.
We also have our Christmas Musical to practise and perform to parents in December. So please keep watch for dates! We will be sending a costume list home in a few weeks time to allow time to look in wardrobes and be creative!
Looking forward to a busy but exciting term!
