Black History Month celebration - a surprise presentation to the parents and some classes in school

The Reception class tremendously enjoyed dancing led by Don Rae. They were not meant to present in front of the parents and classes, however, everybody were very eager to present the dance and promised they will not be shy but actively join in in dancing. They begged from Mrs Tyrrell. And they did not disappoint! We were very proud to every single one of them.

Lego encourages team work

Through playing with Lego children learn how to share and take turns. When working together on Lego construction, children have to agree on the general idea of their play. Children have to follow each other’s lead and begin to understand how different ideas can contribute and extend their play. Children also have to learn to negotiate roles and responsibilities in order to have an enjoyable social experience.
