This week the children saw the addition of new reading areas. We are sure that these areas will be welcomed by the many parents who come to support the children’s reading.
The children also enjoyed practising their art skills on the easels in our new art area. They have been learning to draw different types of houses and homes by using a variety of lines and shapes.
Our new castle role play section has helped the children to reinforce the language we have been teaching in Literacy. The children made links to their topic work about houses and homes and realised that a castle is also a type of house.
This type of play is crucial for children’s speaking and listening development and it also helps to encourage good social skills amongst their peers. Keep a look out for some more additions to the learning spaces in the Year 1 area over the coming weeks.
