This Week in Prep 1

We had an amazing start to the week with our fun and fabulous Easter Bonnet parade followed by 'Celebration of Learning' in our classrooms. The children showed their virtues of 'Joyfulness', 'Creativity' and 'Unity' and they showed off their amazing bonnets. Thank you to the wonderful parents who took their time to help to contribute to making this event such a success! Our parade was followed by a lovely 'Celebration of Learning'; a time for parents to come in the classroom and celebrate with their children all of the learning that has taken place over the term. It was amazing to see so many of your smiling faces in our classrooms! Thank you again for your time and support.

'Ee' was the Jolly Phonic focus for the week - perfectly timed for the upcoming holiday, Easter! We has many cross-curricular links - like making egg shape puzzles for mathematics and designing our own Easter eggs! Our IPC Exit Point, the experimental learning Trip to 'KidsStop', was a wonderful way to finish up all of the exciting work we have been doing during our IPC unit, 'All About Me'. Thank you to the amazing parent volunteers who helped us during this super fun trip!

We hope you have a restful and fun holiday with your children. Enjoy your Easter holiday! We look forward to many new exciting learning journeys together in the upcoming summer term.
