Spring Term

We will begin our Spring Term with a ‘Winter Week’. The children will investigate freezing and melting and will learn about animals which hibernate for the Winter. We will then move on to our new topic, ‘People Who Help Us’. We will have a range of visitors, including police, paramedics, firefighters, mountain rescue, nurses and road safety officers. The children will be involved in lots of role-play activities to encourage good communication skills. We will prepare questions to ask our visitors and listen carefully to what they tell us. The children will read a range of fiction and non-fiction books about People Who Help Us. Our creative skills will be developed by making models of emergency vehicles, painting pictures of People Who Help and singing lots of songs.

This term, we being our ‘Splay’ (Sport through Play) sessions in the hall. These are run by a Sports Development Officer from Oldham and will be every Monday morning. The children will need a pair of black school pumps for this session.

We also welcome Mrs Emmott this term. Mrs Emmott is a specialist music teacher and will be running sessions with the children every Wednesday morning.

Outdoors
We love to learn outdoors and we will go out and use the nature area and quadrangle in all weathers! Please can you provide a pair of wellies for your child to wear when necessary, it is also important that your child has warm, waterproof clothing e.g. water proof coat, gloves and hats for cold and wet occasions.
