Day 3 at Blackwell

Hello Red Class,

Thank you for such a lovely first week. You should feel very proud of your achievements. I think you're more than ready to say 'goodbye' to your grown ups on the path by our balcony. Some of you did this today!

This morning we tried a few steps from our new wake and shake. You tried very hard with your jumping and marching to '5,6,7,8' by Steps. Each day we will practise our wake and shake so you'll get to know the steps.

We also enjoyed playing 'Bunny Ears' where Mrs Webb showed a number of spots on the board and we matched the spots with our fingers. We placed our fingers by our ears like bunny ears. This game will help us to make numbers in different ways.

Later in the day, we exercised the muscles in our hands and arms during our dough dance. It's important to develop our fine motor skills so that we're ready for writing later in the school year. Can you show your grown ups how to roll your dough to 'Round and Round the Garden' or "Tommy Thumb"? 

Next week, we will visit the school hall for PE and to eat lunch. We'll also be opening more of the outdoor areas such as the mud kitchen.

Have a lovely weekend Red Class. Try to look at your new reading book and talk about the pictures with your grown ups and make sure you rest. We're already looking forward to seeing you next week.

Love Mrs Webb, Miss Turner and Mrs Roberts :)
