Transition Week

This week we have been working with the theme 'This is me'.

The children have been working very hard explaining to their new teacher all about themselves.

The children have drawn self portraits and written about their favourite things; we used the book 'Dogger' to support this.

The children have also been discussing their feelings and have written about what makes them happy and sad. We also spoke about the outside of our bodies and labelled our body parts. The children especially enjoyed drawing around their friend to help with the labelling!


PE will take place every Tuesday and Thursday.
