Throughout this term we have been looking at ‘All Things Summer’. We have been talking about places we can go on holiday, animals we may see in summer and the weather that we may have. We have linked our end of year show to the theme for this term so we will be performing songs that relate to summer. We are also looking forward to celebrating the end of term with a garden party!

Also, following the needs and interests of us children, Sam has implemented a new imaginative role play area for us which she has been changing weekly to keep us interested.
