Sharing skills

The Puffins have made a positive start to the week and have been busy learning during their continuous provision sessions in the afternoon. The children have been putting into practise their sharing skills for games, their fine motor skills with the playdoh and communication skills within the role play dinosaurs.

To find out about our friends

Today for PSHE we discussed what it we liked or disliked. To talked to each other about our favourite things and things we don’t like. The children discovered lots about their friends and how important it is to have their own opinion about what they like or dislike. The children then made their own chains of information to give to a friend to learn more about each other.

‘I like ice cream and I dislike chilli’ Alexus
‘My favourite is peppers and I dislike nothing’ Kayden

Peacemakers

Today for circle time the Puffins were introduced to our school policy of Peacemakers. The children did a great job learning about conflict resolution using the school Peacemaker approach. All of the children then got to experience the different roles through roleplay of the ones having conflict and the person using Peacemakers approach to resolve the conflict. The children really got stuck in with creating the conflict! 🙂

Non-fiction books

Today in ERIC (Enjoying Reading In Class) the children have enjoyed choosing non-fiction books to share with a friend.

‘I have got a puppy book because I love dogs’ Taylor
‘This book is very interesting, I’m learning lots of facts’ Evelyn
