Our Autumn Term Activities

Lunch with our parents

 

This week in Foundation the children had their parents stay for lunch. The school lunches were delicious and the children really enjoyed their first school dinner.

Our busy morning routine

Every morning the children start the day using a range of skills. These focus tasks can be scissor skills, pencil control, letter formation, counting and phonics.

Dough Disco

To encourage fine motor skills we participate in a Dough Disco session. This helps to strengthen the finger muscles and improve handwriting and pencil control. We do this to music which the children really enjoy.

Healthy Snack

Everyday the children enjoy a healthy snack which consists of milk or water, apples, bananas, oranges, pears, carrots, tomatoes and raisins.

Wake and Shake

Every day the children have a 'Wake and Shake' session. This improves gross motor skills which then supports fine motor skills and helps to develop the children's handwriting.
Macmillan Coffee Morning at St Edwards
The children performed a dance routine, a song and they played instruments. The children baked buns the day before and decorated them. The parents baked cakes too and we raised money for Macmillan Coffee Morning. Thank you to all parents for your kind donations and we raised 136.92
