Swans and Puffins

After the Christmas break we will begin our new topic of traditional tales- 'Once Upon a Time'. The children will be exploring the magical world of traditional tales beginning with Goldilocks and the Three Bears. There will be lots of opportunities to develop our story telling language through role play, puppets and other resources. Please see our topic web for more information about what we will be learning in the first half of the spring term.


On Friday 5th January children can dress up as their favourite traditional tale character and bring in favourite traditional tales. No superheroes please. We look forward to seeing you in the New Year and hope you all have an enjoyable and restful break.

Reminder- your child should have a named water bottle and a healthy snack is offered to children daily, supplied by the school. We suggest that water bottles are not kept in book bags as they tend to leak.


Please send in any Values leaves for us to share and celebrate.

Both classes have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday with Mr Norris. A tracksuit and trainers (not plimsoles) will be needed along with their PE shorts and t-shirt. This does not have to be a Greenleas tracksuit. Long hair should be tied up and earrings taken out or tape is provided to cover them. Please continue to encourage your child/children to practise getting dressed and undressed and turning clothes the correct way round at home.


Please see your child's class page for photos.
