Study Shows How Bears Hibernate: What It Means for Science - TIME

This term we are exploring bears, inspired by the 'Paddiington' series of books. We will be learning facts about bears including where they live, what they like to eat and how many different types there are. We are hoping to be able to tell Paddington where one of his friends has gone and why! Along the way, we will be measuring, writing labels and letters, making caves and tasting marmalade.

Outdoor Learning: We participate in weekly 'Outdoor Learning' sessions in our Forest School area. There are numerous benefits of learning outside the classroom for a child’s development, both physically and mentally. Take a look at some of the activities that have taken place outdoors in the autumn term. For our most recent session, we were challenged with making a firework picture using natural materials.

Home School Communication

We welcome and encourage parents to come into school (by prior arrangement if possible) to discuss any concern or worries. After school is always a more preferable (and less hectic) time of day. During the new COVID safe arrangments we ask you to make contact with us via Tapestry or via the school's admin e-mail. 


At Layer, we use Tapestry, an easy-to-use and secure online learning journal helping staff and families celebrate their children's learning and development. Tapestry builds a very special record of a child's experiences, development and learning journey through their early years and primary education.
