What a fun Term 1 P1 has had!
Our topic this term was 'All About Me'. After a long time away from our nurseries/pre-schools we were so excited to get back but a little nervous too. As teachers we focused heavily on PDMU and discussed in depth about our emotions. Every morning, we do our mood monsters to see how everybody is feeling! As you can imagine, the 2nd full day of P1, the kids put their lollypop sticks in the tired box!
This term we have discussed all 5 of our senses (this included a fruit taste test, where we voted for our favourite & recorded it on a graph - Apple was our favourite!). The children always contribute to our play planning & decided they wanted a Sainbury's with a café in their home corner. We also had the best fun in our outdoor activity area. We used planks, tyres & other loose parts to practise our patterns, chalk to form our numbers & spotted lots of different shapes too!
We went on an autumn walk around our beautiful school grounds & had our 1st school trip to the plantation!
We have settled so well & cannot wait to learn lots of new fun things in Term 2
