Who We Are – Week 13
It has been such a delight this week to welcome the children into the EY2 class! To hear the laughter, conversations and observe the happiness has been an absolute pleasure.
Both groups settled in beautifully and have showed bundles of confidence in separating from their parents. The children were able to connect with new friends and displayed obvious delight at being able to run around and explore our EY2 learning environment.
The children loved being able to run free in the playground
We have been working on our listening skills and ability to follow instructions and routines and the children have quickly adapted from an onscreen situation to a face to face environment. We read the book, ‘David goes to school’ by David Shannon and gave thought to the choices the character made within the text and how he could make better ones.
We will continue next week to work on our daily routines especially as we have 2 days on and then 5 days away from school. One routine the children have been having fun with is Sharks! When I call out Sharks, the children stop what they are doing, do the shark sign themselves and turn towards the teacher and listen. They have been rather awesome at this Stop, Look and Listen routine.
