Today in circle time, the Puffins were learning how to express their own opinions and to respect other people’s opinions. We all decided on 3 things we would like to change in our playground. We then used out sad face and happy face to discuss what the children’s opinions were. We also ensured if the children gave an opinion then they had to have a good reason for it.
‘I would like new seating because it’s too low for me’ Krista
‘I think we don’t need seats because they cost too much money’ Dora
‘I would love to have swings because they are fun’ Scarlett
‘I hate going on swings they are too high and you could kick someone in the playground’ Daisy B
