All of Early Years got to enjoy a fantastic drama, dance and musical spectacular called Magical Minds. It was a story all about emotions and how they help us to be resilient, hardworking and loving people.
The ‘Emotion Squasher’ was trying to stop us from feeling sad, happy, angry or scared. It’s important to feel different emotions as they help us to understand ourselves and others.
The music and dancing were brilliant. You could really see the different emotions just by watching the movements.
This morning we have enjoyed an assembly from Revd. Waddell. Mr Gray from Three Rivers Refugee Centre also came to personally thank the children for the donations made. May we take this opportunity to thank you all for the generous donations made to such a worthy and local charity.
This morning we have watched a thought provoking performance by Magical Minds to understand different emotions, how we deal with them and to understand we need to experience all emotions to understand and complete our journey.
After half term our new topic will be, ‘People Who Help Us’. The children discussed ideas for the new Role Play area. They then had a think before casting their vote by writing their name on the flip chart. The winner is . . . FIRE STATION!!
In phonics this week we have learnt four new sounds – digraph ck and e, u, r. We have also learnt two tricky words, to and the. These words cannot be sounded out and need to be read by sight, “just like that.”
