We have had a great start to the school year and everyone has settled in very well. We are enjoying getting to know our new routines and exploring our learning environment.
Our topic for Term 1 is 'Marvellous Me!'. Throughout the term we will learn lots about ourselves, our friends and our families. We have already begun by completing lots of exciting activities such as: painting self-portraits, participating in circle times to get to know our new friends and sharing family photos.
So far this term we have been engaging in lots of activities to help strengthen our fine and gross motor skills including: cutting playdough, colouring, threading cheerios onto spaghetti, hammering golf tees and using our school play park. We have also participated in lots of activities to help develop our listening and attention skills including: circle time activities, phase 1 phonics activities and games where children have to listen carefully to sounds and try to guess what they are. Furthermore, we have completed gardening activities to prepare our vegetable garden for planting and learnt how and when to wash our hands properly to ensure we stay healthy and well.
The children were particularly excited when Mrs Bazeley came into Holly Class and read us a story!
We will begin P.E. and Forest School lessons WB 21.09.20. Please ensure P.E. kits are brought into school on Tuesdays and please send children to school in clothes appropriate for Forest School on Fridays (no short sleeves or shorts as arms and legs must be protected). The children are very excited to get started, as am I!
It has been a fantastic start to the year and we are excited to continue our learning journey.
