"Inside out" week 2, this week we learned that we are all different and that is one of the things that makes us so wonderful!! My favourite lesson this week was one that we did in our outdoor classroom. All children were given a pot to go collect things they thought were interesting, when they came back to the outdoor classroom we then took it in turns to sort the items by type. Once we had sorted items we took it in turns to count how many of each thing we had and match the correct numeral to the tray. We found that leaves were the most popular thing in our garden!! Everyone did such good listening too...... I think we will go back to the outdoor classroom.

We had a wonderful first week back to school, I am absolutely amazed at how well P2/3 were able to follow instructions, play together and adapt to our new "bubble" system in school, they really are outstanding and reflect the hard work that you as parents put in to support your children during lockdown. We introduced our new topic "Inside out" so here are some pictures of us playing inside and outside the classroom, I think the new play park is a definite hit!
P2/3 are all really excited to be back at school and we are absolutely delighted to have them back! Here are some pictures of our first day
