Miss Robertson will be doing P.E. with our class on Wednesday and Miss Walker on a Friday this term. See Miss Robertson’s learning leaflet for details.
Within class we will be looking at road safety and how to be safe when in our environment. We will discuss the use of traffic lights, zebra crossings and high-vis jackets when walking on our roads.
This term, we have a very special job to do for a Friendly Dragon who visited our class. The Dragon informed us that fairyland is being destroyed and forgotten about because not enough children are reading fairy tales. We have decided to explore a new fairy tale each week as part of our topic and recreate fairyland in our classroom area. We are very excited about working together with the boys and girls in P1 and P2 and we really hope we can save fairyland for all the characters and the Friendly Dragon.
