It has been so lovely to get back into school after the recent lockdown.  The children are enjoying our new topic, 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles'.  So far we have read 'Mr Gumpy's Outing' by John Burningham and have imagined that we were one of the animals on his boat and wrote about our experience.  The children have also worked on their sketching skills in Art, taking inspiration from the illustrations in 'Mr Gumpy's Outing'.  They have produced a wonderful piece of art full of different colours and textures and have added a drawing of a couple of the animals in the story.   Our photo learning journey will show some of the exciting activities we have been getting up to and will be updated soon.


We are always happy to answer any questions that you may have.
