On Valentine’s Day we’ll be celebrating the day of love with some creative crafts and maybe even making a card for the special people in our lives (our parents and carers).

Shrove Tuesday falls on 25th February this year, so we’ll all be indulging in some scrummy pancakes at lunchtime as well as learning about lent and the run up to Easter.

St David’s Day on Sunday 1st March provides the perfect platform to don our daffodils and learn all about Wales and Welsh culture.

Our topic for the next few months will be ‘Myself and My Body’ and we’ll use this theme to cover ideas such as feelings, staying healthy, as well as good hygiene like covering our mouths when we cough and washing hands. As part of this theme we will be having a visit from Dental Playbox to teach the children about oral health and the importance of looking after our teeth.

‘Under the Sea’ is our other theme within which the children will learn all about underwater worlds through books, waterplay, games and sensory activities.

Finally, all of our staff are currently renewing their Paediatric First Aid certificates this week to make sure we’re up to date with the latest practices and guidelines.
