End May

Just a quick recap of the last couple of weeks in May, as we seem to have fallen behind with the blog, apologies!! We focussed a lot on talking to the children about transitions – especially for the children who will be starting primary school in September. We looked at some of the school readiness skills which are helpful to focus on to support the children’s independence, such as opening lunch boxes, putting on/taking off coats & shoes, asking for help, following instructions, waiting to take a turn etc.
We then had a fantastic Family Fun Day down in the GAA pitch last week to celebrate with the children & their families as we are able to get together again after a long 2 years of Covid restrictions!! We had balloon twisting with Angela from Super Smiley Parties, face painting, a visit from Firefighter Zippy from Quick Thinking Kids, sports & parachute games, bubbles, & SOOOO much fun!!! We’d like to thank all the family members who came & made it such a wonderful, fun day!

The Listening Song (tune: Frere Jacques)

Eyes are watching, ears are listening,
Lips are closed, hands are still.
Feet are very quiet,
You should really try it,
Listening well, listening well!
