Welcome back everyone!

We hope you have had a lovely summer and the poor weather didn't spoil things for you.

This week we will be getting back into school routines and making friends with the children starting this week. Our theme for this half term is called 'Busy Bodies' which means the children will be finding out about all the things we can do with our body!!!

If you have any photos showing some of the things your child gets up to at home please bring in a copy so that we can share it during circle time.
