Birdworld trip was super successful. It was heartwarming to see the extremely strong friendships between our little gems.

Those will be the first friendships that they will cherish and remember for life

First ever friendships which can be remembered! πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ€—

There are studies that confirm that the earliest memories, which can be recalled, point back to when we were 2.5 years old.

Have a lovely Summer and see you in September ❀️

During our last staff meeting we had a privilege to learn from Janine from Suitcase Treasure Bundles.

Not only she educated us about benefits of curiosity approach but also inspired us with many new ideas, opened our minds and helped us come up with a great plan in the further implementation of this approach in our setting.

We are forever GREATFUL πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

On Monday during our Mindful Mondays children were learning about sowing🌱and reaping. As complicated as it sounds they learnt that if they sow seeds of kindness they will see kindness grow🌱 around them.

We read a story 'Be kind' and imagined that our small acts of kindnessβ™₯️ can join others acts of kindness and spill out from our school🏫 into the town and all around the world🌍

In the month of December let's be kind to those around usβ™₯οΈπŸŒŽπŸ—ΊοΈ

Learning to write our own names or just first letters of our names by using our magnetic letter boards.

Before the child is able to write their own name they need to start recognising them. That is why we have self registration board. Each morning children are encouraged to find their name and stick it on the board.

Many of our children are super clever and already able to label their own art workπŸ‘πŸŽ¨πŸ˜πŸ˜Š
