Our topic this term is 'Enchanted'. 

We will be going on a magical journey as we learn about fairy tales and traditional tales.

The first fairytale we will be learning about is Jack and the Beanstalk. 




One of our experience days this week will be planting magic beans. I will be providing all of the resources your child needs for this. If possible, could you please come to school and collect a planting bag (magic beans, pot, soil, stick for a label). All precautions will be taken whilst bagging the products to ensure they are quarantined and safe to go home. 


On Tuesday morningI will leave a box with a named bag of resources for your child just inside the door of the reception area. If you plan to collect one for your child then please collect by Wednesday as we plan to plant them on Thursday as part of our live lesson on Teams.


If your child is in school this week (e.g. key worker) then they won't need to collect a bag.


Alternatively, If you have beans at home that you can use then that is great.
