Hand in hand we learn, we grow, we soar


‘I don’t give up and I bounce back from my mistakes.’


‘I treat others how I would like to be treated.’


‘I am friendly and caring in my words and actions.’


‘I am honest and helpful and make the right choices.’


‘I rise to a challenge and I am brave.’


‘I have love for myself, for others and for God.’


Term 5 - Dinosaur Detectives

When we came back from the Easter holidays we were surprised to find a nest of eggs in the classrooms. We aren’t too sure why they were there, but we have made a list of all of the things that could hatch out of it including crocodiles, snakes, chickens, flamingos, dinosaurs and dragons. 
We were also lucky enough to look at some real eggs, and were fascinated by the size of the enormous ostrich egg and the tiny quail egg.

Come back to find out what happens with our nest of eggs and what our topic is! 

Term 4 - Where shall we go?

Term 3 - Over The Rainbow

Welcome back to term 3! We have an exciting term planned with art activities to help us explore colour, tone and different media types.


We will also be learning about the celebration of Chinese New Year and trying some Chinese food later this month.

Our PE days remain the same of Wednesday and Thursday, but we would recommend keeping your child’s PE kit in school all week. We will be focusing on fundamental gymnastic skills in PE including travelling, rolling, jumping and landing.


Please remember to log your child’s reads onto the Go Read website. We have already awarded our first children with their 50 Nights Reading certificates and prizes!

You should also have received the login for NumBots, where the children can practise quick recall of number facts whilst earning coins to build their own robots! 


Term 2 - Fantastic Festivals

Term 2 is set to be another busy one as we learn about different festivals.


Our PE days will continue to be Wednesday and Thursdays. On Wednesday we will be using the large climbing equipment to build our strength and balance. On Thursday we will be doing our movement sessions to continue to develop our coordination. 


We have learnt about the festivals of Diwali, Bonfire Night, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. We really enjoyed our Diwali day where we learnt how to move in a traditional Indian way. We have practised sharing using sparklers to find out which numbers could be shared fairly. We have also been very excited to learn the songs for our Nativity performance "Prickly Hay", which we performed to our parents. 



Learning Letters

Term 1 Only One Me!

Welcome to Owls and Cygnets!


This term will focus on the settling in of the children, learning routines and making friends. We will be thinking about what makes us unique and special and will be talking about similarities and differences between ourselves and others.


Our learning will be based around some lovely stories including ‘Only One You’ and ‘The Rainbow Fish’.


PE for Owls and Cygnets will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child always has their PE kit in school and that everything is named.


Please also ensure your child has a named water bottle each day.


We look forward to working with you and your children,


The EYFS team.
