We would like to say a big thank you for all your continued support with our fundraising. We managed to raise enough money last term for our new sandpit to be built. Some of the older students in the school, along with our wonderful caretaker Naomi, made a magnificent sandpit for our little ones. Naomi holds small group activities and exercises for some of the older pupils in the school to help build their confidence and self esteem. The group is called the 'I Can' group and it's focus is to show the children that they 'can' achieve things when they work together, sharing ideas and believe in their abilities. So we would like to say a huge thank you to all the students involved and of course to Naomi. Please see some amazing photos below of our children enjoying their new sandpit.
We look forward to another fun filled term, where we will continue to do our weekly activities including; baking, library visits, wellie walks, dance activities, songs and rhymes and lots of free play. We will also be doing lots of sports and outdoor activities so that the children are ready and raring to go for their Sports Day.
We will keep you regularly updated with any dates for your diaries and photos of your children. If any of you wish to talk to us regarding your child/ren's learning, please do come in and talk to us whenever you like. We also hold regular parent days which will keep you updated on your child/ren's progress.
Below are some of the other fun experiences the children have had this term. They include; woodland walks, in search for frogs and caterpillars. Baking and decorating some yummy cakes as well as making some lovely crowns and tiaras to help celebrate the Royal Wedding. Picnics and play times in the garden focusing on the children's physical development and small group activities focused around our story book for the term 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar', to help increase the children's Listening and Attention skills.
