This is likely to be one of our final posts before we bid you all adieu for the summer holidays. With that in mind we hope that you have enjoyed the learning videos sent from our UCPSpace Station last week. Next week will be one that focuses on our transition into Year 1 and prepares the children to meet their new class teacher on Friday for Jump Up Day.
Our story for the week will be ‘The Way Back Home’ by Oliver Jeffers. A story about going on a journey and the unexpected things you might encounter on your way. It also touches on the importance of team work, empathy and friendship – all things we think will be great to hold close to us as we get ready to launch for our new adventures as Year 1s.
