Autumn 1 'All about me'

Look at our learning in action.  We have had fun learning about ourselves and our family,  whilst also making new friends and learning to share and take turns.

Physical Activity

The Foundation children have been working hard and having lots of fun with their physical activity so far. They have really  enjoyed putting our brand new trim trail through it's paces.         

Commando Joes

The children enjoyed taking part in Commando Joes.  Their mission, based on the nursery rhyme Incy Wincy Spider, was to get to the top of the drain pipe before the rain came.  In small groups, the children's legs were tied together and they became Incy Wincy.  Each team had to work together to safely negoiate the obstacle course (drain pipe) and get to the other end.  The focus of our mission was to work on our RESILIENCE.  They did brilliantly!!!
