I will huff and puff and blow your house down 🐺 🏠 🐷 🐷 🐷 the big bad wolf from this weeks story has supported our speech development!We have been blowing into our hands, blowing candles and bubbles and also blowing through straws. We have been looking at cause and effect too- “if I blow the feather it moves into the air”. This developed into using the electric fan to experiment with. The faster the fan was going, the further the balls and feathers travelled! Blowing can also increase the strength of our tongues and that can help with making sounds at the back of our mouths like K and G. It also helps us to be able to achieve a better, rounder lip shape for sounds like W, 'oo' ... See MoreSee Less

We would just like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all the support you have given F over the years.  He has had a wonderful time and he has made some lovely friendships. The Leaver’s Assembly today was just super, the children were all so engaged and happy – a real joy to see.  It was lovely to see F on the stage.  I can appreciate all the hours it took to produce a performance like that and it was a real pleasure to watch.

It is not very often I am touched, but I have to say, the thought and warmth that has gone into H’s final days with you has overwhelmed me… I have never known such above and beyond commitment from a school…thank you from the bottom of my heart.

C has settled in well to Room 1 and enjoys attending pre-school.  Staff make every effort to make C’s time there special and he has come home with certificates with his favourite superheroes which  was a lovely touch.  I feel that staff know C well and have been great helping him with his development and things like potty training.
