Happy New Year! Happy New Decade! We hope you have had a magical Christmas with your families and have enjoyed this very special time of year. We have had a lovely break with our families but we are now excited and ready to welcome your wonderful children back so that the fun and learning can continue. We had a fantastic Autumn term in F1 and it has been a real privilege to watch your children grow and develop. We are super excited to welcome our new January starters and can't wait to be an important part of their learning adventures at St Anne's.
Our 'Theme' for this half term will be 'Why do zebras have stripes?'. This topic will provide opportunities for us to learn about many of the different animals in the world and to appreciate their unique features. We will also explore Africa as a continent, learning about the different landscapes, food and we will enjoy some African music. We will also introduce the children to the crucially important work on animal conservation where we will look at endangered animals and the effect of palm oil deforestation, linked to the school's project with Chester Zoo.
We will continue to make use of our wonderful outdoor space this term so please continue to ensure that your child has a waterproof coat in school and it would also be very useful if you could send a pair of wellies in for your child to use. Please ensure that all of your child’s clothes are named as unfortunately we always have jumpers and cardigans go walkabout and so this would make it much easier to return items of clothing to the correct children. Thank you!
As always, we operate an open door policy and so we are available to answer any questions or concerns that you may have. Mrs Leeson is available on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Mrs Barber is available Monday-Friday. Please pop and see us or alternatively contact us via the school office to make an appointment. We are always here to help!
We are looking forward to the new term ahead and continuing to develop positive relationships with our current families and also our new ones who will be joining us in January. Thank you for your support.
