One of the favourite activities initiated by the children this week has been Dr and Nurse’s role play. It has been lovely to observe and listen to the children being so caring and considerate, making comments such as “Let me take your blood pressure. It’s OK, its 131 and normal”, and “I stayed in the hospital, not for the night, I had a really bad cough, and went home in the middle of the night with Mummy. I didn’t like being in the hospital but the nurses were nice”, and “There’s a splinter in your hand. Splinters are little spikes on your skin”, and “I’m giving you some more blood because you don’t have enough.”
Another highlight of the week has been learning how to play ‘Play your cards right’! Miss Topping took a trip back down memory lane to become ‘Brucie’, while Mrs Brameld played the part of ‘Dolly the dealer’ admirably. The children loved having to guess if the next card value was going to be greater than or less than the card before. Although a very simple game it was amazing to see the early stages of probability being investigated and understood.
The children have enjoyed revisiting their targets set at the beginning of the term and it has been great to see so much progress in such a short amount of time. Look out for the posts on Tapestry over the next few days. Here you will see how your child has been getting on, and also find out what your child’s next targets will be for the second half of the Autumn Term.
It was great to see so many of you at our Parental Guidance evening on Tuesday night and hope that you found it informative and helpful. We would be grateful for any further feedback you might have.
