Children in Foundation Two have enjoyed reading the P4C text ‘A huge bag of worries’ by Virginia Ironside. We have talked about different emotions and identified times when we experience different feelings. We have discussed sharing our worries with friends and family and thought about how we could help others.
Today’s morning activity in Foundation 2 is writing our name. The children are focussing on pencil grip, letter recognition and presentation. I’m so proud of how our children settle in in a morning.
Our children are working so hard on their letter formation they are writing their name and developing their understanding of lowercase letters. Well done everyone.
Children in Foundation 1 are loving the outdoors. They are enjoying all the different learning experiences, today we were estimating how many stones would fill the digger.
Mr Robin’s our site manager has done an incredible job with the renovation work to modernise and develop our Foundation 2 Unit. Our Children loved exploring all the different areas of the continuous provision and our Teachers have loved it too.
