This project supports children with settling into the new rules and routines of school and encourages them to make new friends and feel confident in their class. It teaches children about being helpful, kind and thoughtful at home and at school. This project also teaches children how they are unique and special, the importance of friendship and how people in their family, school and local community are important and can help them.
Parental Engagement: For our memorable learning experience, we went on a walking trip to our local library. We talked about the variety of houses we could see on the way. We shared stories and found out what a librarian does.
In addition, parents and carers sent in photos of the children’s families. They used the pictures as prompts to tell us about different kinds of families.
We picked apples from the school apple tree and made some pastry roses. They were delicious!
