Windmill

Welcome to Windmill Class

 

The year ones have been learning all about bears this term. They have been focusing on the stories ‘Goldilocks and the three bears’ and ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. To inspire their writing they have been retelling the stories through role-play, small world play and making story maps. We have been so impressed with their understanding of key language within each text.

The Windmills have thoroughly enjoyed accessing all of the indoor and outdoor provision to support with their independent learning! This year we also decided that the year one Smugglers would still have opportunities to learn through play as it is so incredibly beneficial. This has proved to be a great success for all of the children who have been inspired by the variety of imaginative ideas!
