Happy and confident

We warmly welcome all the children and parents back to Russell House after a restful Easter break. It has been lovely greeting the children (who are all brimming with excitement) back into school. The new children who have joined us from Nursery all look incredibly smart in their uniforms and everyone is ready to participate in the excitement of the Summer Term. 

The focus for our week has been ensuring that we are all happy, settled and confident in our new surroundings. Everyone has done a fantastic job at settling into the new routines of the day and following instructions given. The older children have taken much pleasure in supporting our new classmates and offering a helping hand when needed. The addition of our brand new outside canopy has provided us with ample opportunities to play outside regardless of the weather. In true British fashion we have had a week of various weathers, but this hasn’t stopped us from enjoying our outside space. We have also enjoyed playing with the Duplo, cars, tap-a-shape, soil, paint and home-area.

We have also been focusing our attention on spring. Many of us have spotted new plants growing and blossom on the trees. We set out on a special spring walk around the school. We used clipboards and pencils to mark what we had found whilst on our walk. To our delight we spotted lambs in the field behind our school. We tried to count the lambs however, we soon realised it was rather tricky as the lambs like to move around a lot. Many of us noticed the range of colours we could see from all the beautiful flowers. Back in class, we made spring flowers using tissue paper.
