In our Circle Times we will be thinking about ‘It's Good to Be Me!' We will think about what we are good at and what makes us happy.


In PE we will be having a weekly session with our tennis coach. We will also be doing REAL PE once a week, where we will be focusing on the fundamental physical skills of agility, balance and co-ordination through stories and songs. The children will love it!


We will be having lots of fun!
