Minnows and Tiddlers

Welcome to our Tiddlers and Minnows class page.


On here, you will find some information about the topics we are covering at school. This page will be updated every few weeks.


Our Topic this term is All Around Me. We will be using this Topic as a way to get to know each other better. We will be talking about our favourite things, creating self-portraits and drawing our families. The children will begin to learn about their 5 senses and how we use them in everyday life. The children will also be using this term to settle in to the routines of school.
