We have been exploring our new play equipment and talked about the rules of keeping ourselves safe.  We went in the outdoor area and collected leaves for an art project and then created hedgehogs using the leaves that we collected.  We also had lots of fun using ipads to draw pictures of ourselves.  

Red class have also been working together to use the parachute and had to learn to work together to make it work properly.  

Red class along with the rest of the school were lucky to watch a member of staff and her dance partner dance various dances. Everyone clapped along to the music and all loved watching them. 

September/October 2022

This half term we have been enjoying out Let’s Explore topic.   The children have been exploring their class environment and school grounds so that they feel settled and happy in their new surroundings.

They have been learning about the local environment and have had opportunities to share experiences that they have out of school.  This topic has ensured that the children feel like a valued member of Primrose Lane Primary School.  The children enjoy finding out who is Star of the Day and who is going to be the Special Helper.  We have started our formal learning of Letters and Sounds, Literacy and Maths as well as continued opportunities for the children to choose their own learning through Independent Time.  We have all had a wonderful half term!
