-Different animals are found in different habitats.

-Different animals require different living conditions to thrive.

-Animals are adapted to the conditions of the habitats in which they live.

Cherry Tree Drop In

Please join us for a cuppa and a chat.  Each week there will be an opportunity to join your child in an activity. 


Context for Learning 


Identifying your feelings and the feelings of others and learning how to empathise does not come naturally to everyone, yet this is a skill that is required throughout life.

Emotional Intelligence is an underpinning tool required within all social interactions.  Identifying our own feelings and the feelings of others helps us to problem solve and read situations.  It helps children work within a group and interact with their peers appropriately.





We have changed the way we plan our learning at Letham.  This is so that teachers don’t spend as long filling in as many bits of paper but more importantly so that all children know what they are learning, how they want to learn and the connected skills.  We look forward to telling parents and friends more about this throughout the year.
