This week we have been focusing on Easter. Mrs Henderson introduced the Easter story earlier in the week and the children sequenced the story to retell it. They made Easter cards and had the opportunity to choose Easter Tasks during their free time. Today we spoke about Good Friday and Easter Sunday and how some of the things we do at Easter time are linked to the story. We were lucky enough to be visited by the Easter Bunny today and were left clues to find our hidden baskets! We also did a spot of egg rolling to end our day! 🙂
We had our second transition day yesterday with the boys and girls from the Early Years. After sharing what we were looking forward to doing next year we spent time getting to know each other in the various play areas in the classroom. After play time we ventured outdoors to our “forest” where we played some movement games and worked with a friend to find different coloured things in and around the trees. The trees continue to grow well, creating a super space for us to play and learn.
P1/2 have worked hard on the last day of term sequencing the main parts of the Easter story and noting down important words that would help them retell it later. In the afternoon, they deserved a run around the garden area having an Easter egg hunt. Happy Easter everyone! See you all on the 18th April.
