Early Years: Olympus

Welcome to Olympus

Big Wide World:

Big wide world

This project teaches children about the global community to which they belong and explores how living things, communities and climates differ around the world

Splash!:

Splash

This project teaches children about water, including floating and sinking, freezing and melting, and why it is important for living things to stay hydrated.

Our memorable experience for our new projects will involve a watery, splashy day! We will explore boats in the water trays, use bubble wands and splish and splash in paddling pools in our garden area. 

We have PE on Monday and Forest School on Fridays. 

Please wear warm comfortable clothes for Forest School and keep a spare set in class as it can be 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.
