Turtles January 2020 Blog Update



Welcome back we hope you have had a fantastic Christmas Break. We were very busy during the run up to Christmas with Drayton Manor, the Christmas lunch and not forgetting of course the wonderful Christmas production, we hope you all enjoyed it as much as the staff and children in the Turtles class did.

Our new topic for this term will be “Dinosaurs”, we will look at a fantastic interactive sensory story using sounds and different materials to explore and link this in with our outdoor learning visiting a range of national trust properties.


The Turtles class will again be accessing local areas of interest including Derby museum looking at artefacts and items from the past, we will bring some of these ideas into our art and design lessons in the classroom. We have noticed a big improvement in the way our children are interacting with their peers and in the community generally, this as a big part of our class ethos and feel it a vital part of our children's development into becoming young adults , the staff are all very proud of what your children have achieved already .


We would also like to thank you all for your continued support and please do not hesitate to contact any member of the Turtles team if you require any information regarding your child whilst at school.
