This term in Forest Class we have been learning about our local area. We have enjoyed exploring the amenities in our local area and looking at the fabulous view from the university. We looked at the book ‘Belonging’ and thought about the view from the window had improved over time. We went on to think about our local area and what we could do to improve it. The children had some fabulous ideas including planting more trees and making it greener. The children went around the school and planted bulbs, which we are looking forward to seeing in the spring. We then went on to think about the people in our local area who help us. The year 1 children created a non fiction book about different occupations to help the EYFS children think about what they might like to do as a job when they grow up. We have loved learning about Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed being part of the Nativity. The children made christingles and Christmas decorations to take home.
