We have been practising our fine motor skills! We have used the fiber optic strands to thread bobbins and used our cutting skills to make snips in paper to create fireworks. We used pipe cleaners, cheerios and play dough to make spiders! Perhaps you can try some of these activities at home?
This week we have been mark making in different media. We have made marks in gloop and paint. Some of us can mark make the first letter of our name. This is a fun activity to do at home in soap or chocolate or jelly or mud!
Thank you to Ruben’s mum to be the first parent to send family observations to us in Foundation 1, using the 2 build a profile website. They were fabulous.
Please let me know if you are receiving our observations of your child by e- mail and e-mail back to us, any exciting activities your child does at home.

Over the next week we will be talking about how different people celebrate in different ways. It is the time of year when some people celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights. We will be learning about the story of Rama and Sita, using our hands to re-tell the story.
If your child would like to bring in a photo of celebrations they have taken part in, we will share them in the classroom. Thank you to those parents who attended the Rainbow sessions on Fridays and joined in!

We have been reading the book “Room on the Broom.”
We are playing with bubbles, balloons and potions!
Our dressing up can be the witch or the animals! We enjoy acting out the story with our props.
All of the new children and our previous early starters have settled in at the beginning of this term wonderfully. They are playing together and helping each other during the session. We have some very independent children with regards to toiletting, putting on shoes and coats. They have been confident when separating from their carers and happy to be joining us at school!
During transition week in Foundation One, we held our “Stay and Play” sessions, for the children and their parents who will be joining us in September 2019. Thank you to everyone who attended, it was wonderful to meet you all. Well done to our present Foundation One children who played with them and made everyone feel very welcome.
