The children were amazing in their Christmas performance this morning, I was so proud of them. Thank you for all of your support.

Many thanks for the EExAT observations you have been sending in from home. Here are some ideas of things to look out for : 

  • playing a game where they have to take turns. 
  • telling you which colour they are feeling (green, red, blue or yellow) and why. 
  • mark making using any material or media. 
  • counting objects, sorting objects eg leaves by colour or size. 
  • a new achievement, eg swimming without arm bands or trying something new for the first time. 
  • being kind to somone.

Your observations from home form a huge part of our understanding of your child and these observations are really valubale to us. Please keep sending them in.
