Meerkats Learning

Term Three in Meerkats


It is a big term for Meerkats! We have moved into our new classroom and are meeting all of our new friends and the new grown ups who will help us. 


As it is a new room, new staff and new children, we are going to spend the upcoming term getting settled into the class, knowing the routines and having fun being at school.


We will also be putting a good morning routine into practice where we will say good morning to each child and adult using Makaton as a way to learn each others names. We will also be learning the days of the week and talking lots about the weather, as we are able to use our new outside area to explore the different weathers we get during the upcoming months. 

Term Two in Meerkats

Our topic for term two is festivals and celebrations. We have learnt about:

-bonfire night

-remembrance day 


-Anti-bullying week 



We have also had lots of special visits this term! 

An author called Zehra Hicks came to read us her stories Pug Hug and Cheeky Monkey. 


We also had a firefighter come to see us and let us try on their uniform! It was very big, very heavy and very fun!
