We will be celebrating our uniqueness this week, as the topic is ‘About Me’, so at the start of the week, the classes will be sharing what differences & similarities they have with each other, starting with things such as their names & birthdays (& making the class birthday chart), their favourite food, colour, song etc.
As well as this, we have the arrival of a new month – October – already!! The children will be going on a nature walk to observe and collect autumnal objects for the nature table, and we would encourage them always to bring in anything they find outside of school to share with their friends and class.
Then later in the week they will be practising mindfulness and yoga – we always find that no matter how young the children are, that they all get so much from these practices, whether it’s just learning to take deep breaths to calm down, thinking about their favourite place to relax, stretching their bodies or making up their own imaginative & unique poses!!
I Am Special (tune of Frere Jacques)
I am special, I am special,
If you look, you will see.
Someone very special, someone very special,
That is me, that is me.
