F3 were buzzing with excitement for their first swimming lesson on Tuesday with Mr Adam and Mr Quynh. They started with getting used to the water and looked at ways to help them gain confidence. These lessons will continue this term as long as the weather is good. Please don’t forget to send your child in with their towel, costume and flip flops so that they can join in with the session.
During the Early Years assembly time the children have been learning about how to be kind and how to stay safe and follow the school rules. We have read books about sharing, taking turns, germs (importance of washing our hands) and not using our arms and legs appropriately for sporting activity.
Moving on, the children are now starting to learn more about the attributes of the different school monster mascots. Last week, they explored ‘Pogo Perseverance’ and they learnt how important it is to keep trying and not to give up all the time and say ‘I can’t! Help me!’ This week, they have met the ‘Cooper Cooperation’ mascot. He has helped them to see how important it is to listen to their friends and the teachers. He taught them about sharing, how to help their friends and how to work together. Cooper is helpful and friendly and with 6 arms so he can help and support other people.
