Before we have a look at what we have been up to this term so far, let’s take a look back at last term…
We opened our Sapling’s Chinese restaurant to celebrate the Chinese New Year in style. The children were encouraged to be ‘brave eaters’ and try some traditional Chinese food. They all enjoyed the restaurant experience; looking at the menus, eating the food and they even paid at the end! As well as dining at the restaurant, the children also made some Lucky Money Wallets, designed Willow Pattern plates and helped make a Chinese dragon head, which they used when performing a dance in the hall to music.
We looked at the story of Handa’s Surprise by Eileen Brown and the children participated in a range of activities based on the story. The highlight of the topic was when the children produced their very own film! They did a great job when acting out their scenes and listened well to the director’s direction. We are all very proud of them and the film premiere was a success.
Since returning after the half term break, we have started our new topic of ‘Transport and Journeys’ and have been looking at the different ways we travel to school. The children have been enjoying our bus and ticket office role play area outside and we have been reading lots of books on travel and transport.
The children have also been using their phonics skills to do some great writing; they wrote their half term news and wrote a new page for the ‘On the Way Home’ story. Over the next few weeks we will be looking at land, sea, and air transport in more detail.
hese are just a few highlights. We look forward to filling you in on what else we get up to for the remainder of the term.

Throughout the year in Saplings there are occasions when we offer the children small amounts of a variety of foods to taste, to fit in with our current topic. We are aware of dietary requirements already supplied, should there be any changes, please inform the school office and we will take note of this when providing food to your child.
