The Great Outdoors
A very warm welcome to all the children starting in Reception class,
It is time to jump onboard the Red Barn bus so don’t forget your boarding pass!
Our ‘The Great Outdoors’ topic will kick start our journey this half-term,
We will work as teamwork ants to build a slide and swing for Superworm!
Our daily outdoor learning sessions will focus on building our resilience,
We will also learn to problem solve while demonstrating our creative brilliance!
We will read Patricia Hegarty’s Tree and explore the trees in our grounds,
Venturing through our school forest and mapping the different nature sounds,
Sharing the story of Leafman and making character representations,
Using seasonal natural materials at our Miles and Sabrina creation station,
Reading about the adventures of Stanley’s Stick by John Hegley,
Imagining a new purpose for our stick… I wonder what yours will be?
Our role-play area will be transformed into a campsite with a flickering fire,
A perfect place for singing songs, sharing stories or star gazing when we tire!
Please remember to wear your PE kit to school on a Friday,
Wellies at the ready for our very first term at Red Barn… hip, hip, hooray!
