The children enjoyed helping create and explore the dens outside. They created stories through role play and enjoyed sharing them together.
We are encouraging further reading at home with reading buddies. Some children have now achieved their bronze medal for reading in different places for fun, these have included: on a swing, with a flashlight in the dark, in the car and under an umbrella in the rain.
We have enjoyed using the writing socks and special writing feathers to engage in handwriting. The children wrote for different purposes but enjoyed experimenting. Using the special feather pencils to draw and write together.
In our role play and open ended opportunities in the classroom provision, we have been constructing number lines from 0 to 25 using the number cards and tracks. We have been practicing and embedding counting reliably with numbers from one to 20+, placing them in order and saying which number was one more or one less than a given number.
We loved our walk and visit to Fulwood Library. We have been promoting the importance of the library and how it is an important corner stone of a healthy community. We enjoyed getting lost in some beautiful books read during our session. It was a lovely and peaceful, the librarian explained what was available in the library to enhance our learning and how to most importantly join and become members.
The children really enjoyed themselves at the mini skills event. We relished tackling a new experience against so many schools, we worked together cheering one another on and celebrated our achievements. Competing in throwing, jumping running and passing activities broadening our experiences of sport in action.
