Overview of next week’s learning
We will continue to focus on smooth transitions back into school life and will welcome some more new joiners in the Giraffe class next week. Our focus will be in developing the children’s personal, social and emotional development through songs and stories. This is also cross-curricular and will develop their communication and language and build on their English vocabulary; the focus being the names of the parts of our face and body. During our Welcome circle time, we will talk about our feelings and about being happy or sad.
