It has been another busy week. We are beginning to think about the changes coming in September, how we felt when we first started Reception and how the new nursery children may be feeling. We have made a book of ‘helpful hints’ using our growing writing skills to share with the new children.
Monday saw the children enjoying a fabulous performance by the Richard Hale Band. Some children got the chance to sit amongst the band whilst they were playing. We had many drum kits and instruments recreated in the classroom for the rest of the day, indeed the week!
We enjoyed the assembly by Judo Paralympian silver and bronze medallist, Ian Rose. He was inspirational and talked about the importance of never giving up. Many children returned to the classroom to make medals, practise their sports skills and find out more about the sports on offer in the Paralympics using the internet.
In child initiated learning their have been models made from wood in the woodwork area, a bowling alley made from the big blocks and a pop up theatre outside.
