We hope you have all had a wonderful break and are ready to have another fantastic half term!
Alongside our regular activities we will also be thinking about people who help us, what and how we celebrate and some of our favourite stories.
Every day the children will have a range of learning activities set out as well as opportunities to learn key skills and games.
Jigsaw and games
Painting and drawing
Cutting and making things
Small world and roleplay
Reading and action songs.
Fine motor and gross motor activities
