Term 3
At this cold and dark time of year we have chosen to focus on ice, winter, Chinese New Year and space. We will continue to do P.E. on Wednesdays. It is a short but fun-filled term coming up. 


To see how your child will be assessed at the end of their Reception year you can read the Early Learning Goals.
