Beech Class learnt about Baroness Floella Benjamin who emigrated as a child from Trinidad to England in 1960. They listened to her story, Coming to England. The children then thought about what she should put in a suitcase and looked at photos of Trinidad.
Today we practised completing different hand writing patterns and even had a go at writing some of our letters. The children used thick crayons to make gross motor movements similar to what they do in squiggle while you wiggle.
Some of the children are finding it a little tricky to think of things which have the initial sound of s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d. Why not have a game of eye spy or search the house for things starting with the sounds covered.
Beech class had so much fun exploring the outdoors and finding natural resources that they could use to make their own owl baby.
The adults in Beech Class have been very busy getting ready for you all to start. We are looking forward to meeting you all.
