🚶🏼♀️In the month of October we will be looking at the topic of “All About Me”.🚶♂️ We will also have lots of fun Halloween activities.🎃
This excellent activity was an opportunity to allow the children to talk freely about themselves. In a language-rich environment modelling language is so important.
🍓We have begun our Yoga lessons as part of our Mindfulness. Yoga is a very positive experience in Nursery. It allows the children to take a little time out to relax and focus, breath and be calm. We love it. 🍓
⭐️Every child is special. Every child is a pupil of the week!! Each week Mrs McCloskey and I will highlight something special that a particular child has achieved or done. Everyone will receive this Award. This is a great opportunity to teach children about resilience and life skills. ⭐️
