Learning

Term 1 was a very busy term. Children settled well, learnt new routines and engaged in exciting opportunities. Look at some of the photograph albums on the right of this page. 

The children used mapping skills and followed Rosie's Walk.  We are Geographers. 

       . They drew their own maps!

 

Going on a BEAR HUNT! We followed clues, discussed and use our words to find the bears. We weren't scared!!! We are explorers. We are speakers and listeners.

We are busy from the time we set foot in the setting. What fun we have. 

     

 

Reading and sharing books - We are readers

The books chosen to read to the children are carefully selected to enhance their learning and help them make connections.

They will focus on spring and planting seeds-learning how to care for seedlings, how to care for their environment and other living creatures.
