Road Safety Week

This week the children have been thinking about ways to keep safe when walking, scooting or cycling by a road.  They practiced holding hands and crossing the road on the playground either by using the zebra crossing or where the adult was holding the lollipop.  Some children pretended to be the traffic and drove the bikes around, remember to stop and wait to let people cross the road.  The children were so inspired that they set up their own roadway in the outside area using the bricks, taking turns with the road signs and traffic lights in different areas.

Our Christmas Nativity!

The children did amazingly in our Christmas Nativity performance! They sang, acted and joined in beautifully... We were so very proud of them all!

Trip to Seasalter Christian Centre

To celebrate the Christian Nativity Story, we visitied Seasalter Christian Centre. The children took part in dressing up as Nativity characters, they made their own Christingle and even had a lots of fun bouncing on a bouncy castle! This was also our first trip on the new school mini-bus and the children loved every minute!

Our first few weeks...

We have been learning to use the different areas of the classroom independently.  We now know where all the equipment is kept in the classroom, including the puzzles and games.

We have learnt how to control different tools such as paintbrushes, glue sticks and scissors safely and carefully. 

We have been using our imaginations in the home corner and have had lots of fun making drawing, making patterns and playing with our new friends.
