We have had a great start to the academic year in the Brilliant Pandas. The children have settled into their new classroom and are forming some new friendships in their Tribes Groups. The first project the children did was inspired by the story ‘The Little White Owl’ by Tracey Corderoy. The task was to make an owl on a template by using sponge paint. The class talked about patterns and tried to follow their own patterns and designs during the craft. The children also started on the Jolly Phonics programme, and have been working through the first set of sounds. Finally, the children had the opportunity to participate in some fine motor skills fun by using tweezers to select and match the pom poms to the correct colour.
