The 'I Can Tree'

You may have noticed the 'I Can Tree' that we have started to make in the cloakroom; this is an alternative way to contribute to your child's learning journey.

You and your child can write something, draw a picture or stick a photograph onto the leaf to show, for example, scoring a goal at football practise, zipping their own coat up, baking cakes or even using their own knife and fork!

We will add these to the tree, then save them to add to your child's learning diary.  A plastic wallet is attached to the parent's notice board with extra leaves, so that you can help yourselves when you need them.

The children also learnt how Mrs Sharma and her family celebrate by decorating their house with candles and colourful lights, they even had fireworks!
