This term we will be exploring our new environment and forming positive relationships with both the adults and the children. Throughout the term we will be following the children’s interests and will be using these interests to challenge and extend their learning. We will also be focussing on self-help skills and learning how to make our own snack, fasten our own coats and go to the toilet independently.
