September 2018

A new year, a new term and Lion Class are already working as a team! We were happy to see our ‘old’ friends after the summer holidays and have made new friends too! A big welcome to Yameen and Rhys who have joined Lion Class and who are new to Cliffdale!

We have discovered all the exciting games and toys to play with in Lion Class and we will be able to enjoy these after doing ‘good work’ and when we are doing ‘choosing’. We work hard towards earning awards and rewards. Some of us have already got 4 awards in our Bronze Award Cards!

New routines have been learnt and we are even learning to line up properly most of the time. Lion Class have enjoyed exciting events like Team and Topic Launch Day and have participated really well in these. Our topic for the Autumn Term is ‘Survival of the Fittest’ and we enjoyed coming to school in our camouflage clothing and painting our faces in camouflage paint!

Two birthdays have already been celebrated in class and we all tried very hard to join in playing musical chairs and pass the parcel with our friends!

As always there will be lots of exciting learning taking place this term and Lion Class are looking forward to what fun and stimulating activities we will be doing. We are very lucky to be going to Forest School this term as it fits in so well with our topic. We love going to Forest School where we have the chance to discover and learn about the outdoors and get to build dens and climb on logs! We cannot wait to see what else Fran will be doing with us!

Playtimes are one of our favourite parts of the day when we get to play with our class friends and friends from other classes. There is always someone or something exciting to play with!

We are ready to do lots of learning this term! Keep a look out for the next website article when we will be able to tell you more of what we have been up to!
