We are holding Covid-safe School Tours!

Chinese New Year continued!

We’ve been continuing our learning about Chinese New Year this week. The children had a Chinese banquet on Tuesday, they tried lots of different foods and had a go at using chop sticks! Be sure to check out the video on below. The children were also inspired by traditional Chinese pottery and had a go at making and decorating their own clay plates and bowls. In maths this week, we have been using Numicon to explore number bonds to 10!

At Thistle Hill, our children are excited and motivated to engage in rich and challenging experiences, both inside and outside of their classroom. We have high ambitions for all of our children, with staff planning carefully to meet each child’s needs and stage of development, ensuring our children get off to a great start in their education. Child initiated play based learning is at the heart of our practice. We carefully plan for opportunities, activities and experiences that develop all of our children into independent, resilient and confident learners.​
