In PE the children have been developing their independence, understanding of the need for safety when tackling new challenges, and considering and managing some risks. They have explored traveling with confidence and skill around, under, over and through balancing and climbing equipment in the hall.

"I climbed to the top," Jackson
Zainab " I was trying to get to the top, top, top"
Ezekil said " I was climbing then I jumped down".
"I'm independent of everything," Amelia
Funky Fingers a series of fun activities for children to build up their upper body strength (gross motor skills) and finger/hand strength and control (fine motor skills). There are a wealth of activities that you can do with your child to improve these skills and get them ready to write. I can recommend visiting the website ‘Therapy Street for Kids’ which has a lot of information on the different skills to develop as well as lots of great ideas.
"I made a bird feeder," Alice.
"The tweezers were tricky," Bobby.

"This took a long time," Holly.

We know that information can be retrieved from books. We have been enjoying an increasing range of books. The children are using the 'Silver Story Telling Chair' to use vocabulary and forms of speech to tell stories that are increasingly influenced by their experiences of books.
"I really enjoyed this, I felt like a teacher".
" Write, I love my mum," Aisha
"I was reading a book to everybody," Marcus.
