Term 5 – My Community and Me!


This term our topic is ‘Our Community and Me!’ We are really looking forward to sharing our learning with Nursery. We will be exploring our community; from the people who help us to our local area and the environment. We will also be finding out about our country, continent and our planet!


We would love to hear about your work and how you help the community. Please get in touch if you would like to talk to the children about how you help others in your job, we could arrange to video call you or you can visit us in school.
