In September, our new children quickly settled in and have learnt so much already! We have been learning how to select our own lunch, hang up our coats and find our name cards. We are becoming so independent. We have been looking at the story of ‘Whatever Next’ and retelling the story with actions. We have loved going into space!
In October, we invited our parents in to enjoy a short performance of ‘Owl Babies’. They warmed up with some autumn vegetable soup and took part in autumn craft activities. We really enjoyed having them here! We also welcomed some owls into school for a visit and were brave enough to hold them ourselves. We have been working hard in Phonics and have been learning all about the numbers 1 to 5. We can't believe how much we have done already in our first half term at Jarrow Cross.
In November, we have been retelling the story of ‘Dear Zoo’ and have even made our own flap books, which we are very proud of. We have been identifying and describing shapes, creating patterns and exploring money. We went for a lovely walk to visit Jarrow Library for a special story time. We also received a visit from some nurses, who talked to us about how important it is to wash our hands properly.
