As your children settles into the unit, we will encourage them to share their experiences with you and invite the children to share their passions with us. 
This term we have had lots of fun learning about the life of pirates, the children thoroughly enjoyed dressing up as a pirate for the day and joining in all the pirate activities. As Christmas has now passed we are going to be placing a greater emphasis on our writing abilities, developing skills in sentence writing and reading. The class topic 'Planets' hopes to excite the children in their learning and round off the term with a star gazing event for children and their families.
