Well it’s hard to believe, but this week is the start of June, and our last month of school for this year….how time is flying by!! Thank you so much to all the parents who came with us last week on the school tours to Lullymore – we couldn’t do these trips without you, and it was great to have you there to experience the excitement of it all!!
This week as well as talking about May ending and June starting, we will be discussing what makes us all different as individuals, and the children will be doing self-portraits; they previously did self-portraits in October when we were learning about emotions, so it will be lovely to have the 2 to compare! We will be encouraging the children to think more about others by doing an empathy game – where we describe one of the children by what motivates them or what is important to them, their likes and personality, and the children have to guess who it is – in this way they are seeing each other as more than just another child in the classroom, and looking outside themselves, which is sometimes hard to do at this young age!
1, 2, 3, 4, 5
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 once I caught a fish alive,
6, 7, 8, 9, 10 then I let it go again.
Why did you let it go?
Beacuse it bit my finger so –
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on my right!
