Term 1 Learning Journey

Frontiers

Weeks 1 to 3 A big journey begins with small steps!

This term we focus on getting to know each other! The children explore their new indoor and outdoor spaces, they make new friends and get to know the adults who look after them. The adults play and chat to the children, getting to know them all, what they like to do and how they learn.

We begin by learning all our new routines with a particular focus on good hand hygiene and 'catch it, bin it, kill it' for coughs and sneezes!

Our school value focus this term is courage and we have been encouraging resilience and independence right from the start! All our children are showing that they can be a 'tough tortoise' and have settled so well enjoying all their new experience and challenges.
