This week was our first full week back in school after the summer holidays and the fun we have had has been energetic, full of laughter and such a joy to be part of. The children have shared their holiday news, their likes and dislikes and have enjoyed the getting to know you activities and games.
The Olympics have been our initial learning focus and it was astonishing to hear how much some of the children already knew! They were super engaged when learning about the Paralympics and they loved it when we started looking at the symbolism of the Olympic flame. An activity called flag relay was a great success. It saw the children having to match the name of a competing Olympic team to their flag, the challenge being, that they could only match one before having to go back to their desk, sit down and then go again!
More Olympic activities and photos to follow so check back soon!
