Early Years: Olympus

Welcome to Olympus

Starry Night:

This project explores the differences in the world at night compared to during the day. It teaches children about the importance of a good night’s sleep, and helps them to discover what is happening in the world while they are sleeping, including finding out about nocturnal animals. 

Winter Wonderland:

This project teaches children about the changes that happen during winter, including the types of weather associated with winter. It also explores places that have snow all year round and the types of animals that live there. 

 

For our memorable experience in January, a mobile planetarium will be visiting school. Children will take part in interactive sessions within the dome to learn more about the incredible universe.

We have PE on Monday and Forest School on Fridays. 

Please wear warm comfortable clothes for Forest School as it can be cold and muddy in the woodland area. If you have a pair of boots please bring them in and name them.

Pre-Teach

If your child has been invited to pre-teach, please drop them off at 8.20am - or we can collect from breakfast club if they attend. (Tuesday, Wedneday, Thursday)

Tapestry: Please check in regularly to access observations made in class and to see activities to support your child at home. For example, we regularly post activities to support children's mathmatical understanding and also share Ruth Miskin videos linked to individual Read Write Inc. groups. If you have any questions, please speak to Mrs Wavish, Miss Goodgame or Mrs Olive.
