This half-term has been fantastic; it has been incredible to welcome everyone back to St. Mary’s, back to year one, after what seems to have been a very long time away. Our focus has been Well-being and we have used the story ’The Colour Monster’ by Anna Llenas and we have discussed what makes us happy, the different emotions we feel also and how we can get support from one another.
We have also looked at colour, at shade and tints of colours and have enjoyed a wide range of creative activities.
It has been great to spend time outdoors to play maths games, make shadow monsters and to undertake team building activities with our friends from year two. We have seen the seasons change from summer to autumn and have enjoyed exploring our forest school area and having outdoor learning as part of our weekly curriculum too.
