Welcome to the Summer Term!

We have begun the summer term exploring a range of occupations, including firefighters, police offices, builders and chefs. So that the children can experience life as a vet, the role play area has been transformed into an animal hospital.




Practitioners have already overheard many great conversations about all kinds of wonderful animals in the role play area. Therefore, we are hoping to continue along this theme by finding out about all sorts of animals. From those living in cold, arctic temperatures to those roaming the hot, sandy desert. The children will be lucky enough to discover interesting facts about some of the animals featured in Elieen Browne’s story, ‘Handa’s Surprise’. They will also be able to see them first hand when we take an educational visit to Paignton Zoo.


Sports Day will so be upon us this term so we will be using the main hall and the school fields to practice our racing techniques.
