Phew! What a lot of fun we have had so far this term. We have been so busy with our learning and settling in with the rest of our school family. We love going to have lunch with all of our new friends in the "big" playground and all of our new friends have helped us to feel safe and loved at school.
Here are photos from some of our exploring this week. We have made a bridge over the lava mountain, practised writing our letters, careful counting and matching to numbers, making new beds and houses for our babies and exploring with magnets! Mrs Bennett and the grown ups in Elf owls can't wait until next week for a new week of learning and investigating together.
You are all fabulous!
I would like to say a huge well done to ALL of the new Elf Owls for an absolutely fantastic first week at school. We have been so impressed with how you are coming into school and picking up new routines so quickly and taking these new experiences in your stride. You have shown us that you can share, listen, ask questions, join in, build, write, count, colour, fix, run, climb, pull, skip, jump, observe, snip, ride, dig, tidy, tell stories, sweep, have courage, sing and dance, not bad for week one!
Enjoy the photos from this week and be proud of all of your achievements this week. I have also added some songs we have enjoyed this week too. Have a good rest this weekend ready for new learning next week.
Thank you for all of your support
Mrs Bennett, Mrs Howlett, Mrs Quartermain, Miss B and Mrs Harris
