What We Learnt Last Half Term

Trains, Planes and Automobiles

The highlight of this half term has had to be our Friday Well Being Walks with Michael from the Manchester United Foundation. This school year has been a real challenge for us – we have been limited to using our classroom and our outside space due to other areas of school being restricted due to COVID. For us to be able to get out for a walk on a Friday, whatever the weather has literally been a breath of fresh air!

The children have been amazing and have thoroughly enjoyed their walks to the park – walking there and back for some of the children is an achievement in itself and they have coped really well with it. They have engaged in all the activities – feeding the ducks, exploring the swings and slide, playing alongside other children in the community, parachute games and running around on the field chasing a ball. We have been very proud to be out of school with all of them.

Our other highlight this half term has been to access our new pool. We are just getting used to the new space but we have loved the sessions so far. We have enjoyed lots of water play outside this half term especially when the sun has been shining. The Chaffinches love to splash and get wet! Some of our children who can be reluctant to engage in water or messy play have also joined in which has been fantastic to see.

It has been a challenging year due to COVID but everyone has coped really well and made lots of progress across all areas of the curriculum. We are very proud of our Chaffinches and how they have grown and developed this year. Have a lovely summer everyone!
