Our topic this week has been Peter Pan, and the children have thoroughly enjoyed it! From building Peter Pan and the Lost Boys' house, to dressing up, acting out the story and even doing some fantastic writing based around Peter Pan! We are really looking forward to continuing with our topic next week where we will be making pirate hats, treasure maps and telescopes...I wonder if you can guess which character in particular we will be focusing on?

On Wednesday 4th October, we will be having a Peter Pan dress up day! The children are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite Peter Pan character - Peter, Tinkerbell, Hook, Smee, a mermaid or even a crocodile!

Another great week in Big Bears, and what a busy week it has been too! Our first full week in school and having our school dinner in the hall, our first PE lesson of the year, enjoying shining star assembly and drawing our favourite Toy Story characters.

Next week we are excited to start creating our learning journeys; a folder that will be filled with our lovely work, observations and photographs of us working hard. We will be sharing these with you at our 'Open Classroom' next month!

Don't forget to follow us on Twitter @TheValeBigBears to see what we are up to every day!

Big Bears have had a super first week this week and have finished the week off with a school dinner! The children did exceptionally well with their lunches and are all looking forward to trying something different next week. Big Bears have all been sent a dinner slip with their name on, please fill in their dinner choices for next week and return the slip to us on Monday morning.

You can now follow us on Twitter @TheValeBigBears where you wil find lots of information, daily photographs and videos on what fun we are having in Foundation Stage.

Next week we are look forward to starting our Disney topic with Toy Story, and the children are invited to bring in one of their favourite toys from home to share with their friends (they can bring in a toy on any one day, nothing too big please!).

Thank you again for a great first week back Big Bears, have a super weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again on Monday!
