The year seems to have passed very quickly and I can hardly believe we are in our final half term! Over the next few weeks, our topic is on a seaside/under the sea/pirate theme. If you have any fiction or non fiction books we could  borrow please, they would greatly enhance our reading area.Also, if you have any resources or artefacts connected with the theme, they would be greatly appreciated. Please make sure everything is named.

We will also be making a large cardboard pirate ship for role play and if anyone has access to large cardboard boxes, please let me know.

Our topic culminates with a trip to The Deep in Hull on Thursday 20th July.

Please look out on our newsletters for further details.

 Many thanks again for your continuing support
