Wow! Another super week in Squirrels, as you will see from the photographs.
This week, we joined the rest of the school for our daily worship and the Harvest service this morning. We have fully changed for P.E. and the children have impressed me with their developing independence skills. They have obviously been practising at home. Thank you for your support with this.
We have been developing our fine motor skills through our daily 'funky fingers' activities, the children have enjoyed the challenge of using chopsticks or copying a pattern on the peg board.
The children were introduced to Kipper this week and we celebrated his birthday today as a special class reward. We made a fruit salad for our snack time and the Squirrels were very busy in the writing area weighing his presents and creating cards and invitations for him.
We have also talked about staying safe as part of our learning about 'I am special, I am me!' as the children explored the bikes and road safety in the Squirrels outdoor area.
I look forward to seeing everyone for more adventures next week.

We have had a fantastic start to our learning journey in Squirrels. The children have settled very well into their new routines and it has been lovely to see them all looking so smart in their new uniform.
As you will see from the photographs, we have had a very busy week exploring our new environment and making new friends.
Hopefully, the children have shared some of their experiences with you at home but if not then these photographs are an ideal prompt to encourage them to do so.
Thank you for your support and please continue to encourage your children to dress and undress themselves as this is a great help when changing for P.E.
Have a lovely rest over the weekend Squirrels ready for more adventures next week!
