Our Learning Journey
Welcome to our Learning Journal!
Hello all! Keep checking back on this page weekly to see what we have been up to at school.
Welcome to Chestnut Class! We have had a brilliant start to the new term and the children are settling really quickly into school routines and procedures. Much of our focus this week has been getting to know each other.
This week we started our whole school topic of 'Emotions and Change' by looking at the story 'The Colour Monster'. We have coloured in a monster - with our own choice of colour - and have compared the feelings from the story to our own individual experiences. This has been a great conversation starter between children and has helped us all to normalise that everyone feels different in various situations - and this is ALWAYS okay. We had a big discussion about emotions and concluded that it IS always okay to feel any emotion - whether its being sad, angry, happy, excited or the need to cry. After this discussion we all spoke about different ways to manage our emotions around school and at home.
Check out our display below and hopefully later this week will have some pictures up of the children engaging in our provision activities.
