Welcome back to Term 4!
We hope you enjoyed the half term break and managed to get some time to relax. If you have any photos you’d like to share on Earwig we’d love to see them. We are looking forward to the new term and the arrival of spring plus more sunlight and hopefully warmer weather.
We will be starting a new theme of ‘Green Fingers’ which will run through terms 4 and 5.
We will explore growing plants, flowers and vegetables and will be using sensory/interactive stories, sensory exploration, cooking sessions, music and art to immerse ourselves into the theme.
We are continuing to have weekly Bristol Bears PE and Hydrotherapy sessions.
The RSE foci for this term are ‘Relationships’ and ‘Life Cycles’.
We will also be focusing on ‘communicating with our friends’ in lots of different ways.
Weekly swimming sessions will continue to take place on Tuesday mornings. Your child’s swimming kit should include - swimming costume/swimming shorts, swim nappy, tegaderm (if required), 2 towels, shower gel/soap.
Please use the home-school diary with any questions and updates. If you need to speak to me for any reason, please phone the school office on 0117 3533622 (Henleaze campus).
If your child is going to be absent for any reason, we really appreciate an early morning phone call to the office by 8.30am and a message left on the answering machine, as this greatly helps us plan our staffing.
Reminder of what’s needed in school
- Change of clothes kept in school, useful for any messy days.
- A supply of pads (nappies) , wet wipes and creams if needed. (We will write in your diary if these are running low.)
- Snacks and squash if your child needs these.
- Clothes that are appropriate for the weather, especially during outdoor learning sessions.
We will be adding photos and comments about what your child gets up to at school. If you have any access issues do let us know.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
