Pine 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Pine's class learning page. On this page you will be able to find information about our learning in school such as our class timetable, our topic overview each half term, notices and also daily home learning if you are isolating at home.
Our topic this half term is 'Me and My Community' which focuses on supporting our children with settling into the new rules and routines of school and encourages them to make new friends and feel confident in pur class. In addition to this, we will be teaching our class about being helpful, kind and thoughtful at home and at school. Another very important aspect to our topic this half term is to teach children how they are unique and special, the importance of friendship and how people in their family, school and local community are important and can help them.
We have uploaded our Curriculum Newsletter for this half term so you can also see some of the Early Learning Goals we will be particularly focussing on as well.
P.E. day is Wednesday. Please come to school dressed in your P.E. kit on this day.
