This term always zooms past! We hope all the Daddies liked their cards and gifts for Father’s Day – the children worked really hard on them.
This term has definitely been child led, with many requests to have hairdressers, castles, dinosaurs, dolls and horses out in roleplay/small world areas.
Our “themes” of Birds and Construction have linked our learning indoors and our Forest School sessions, and we’ve built dens, volcanoes and lots of nests!
Summer Term is when we really focus on getting our School Leavers prepared so we place a lot of emphasis on listening during registration, taking turns, offering a variety of malleable activities to strengthen finger muscles and independent learning.
But it wasn’t all hard work…….!
We’ve spent lots of time under shade in the sandpit, at the “hairdressers”, or outside creating fantastic water chutes down which boats, sticks and even cars have travelled into the rock pools at the bottom. And it’s not over yet! Our final week will be all about the Seaside, finishing with a trip to Mersea on 23rd July. Photos to follow…..!
