Our first topic is called ‘Hello, Friend’. We love to find out about the families and interests of all the children. We use books, topics and the children’s interests to tailor our teaching and learning for the rest of the year. The children spend lots of time choosing their own learning, this can be inside; building with duplo, drawing pictures, completing a puzzle or making a creation with the junk modelling. Or they may choose to take their learning outside; playing in the sandpit, riding on the scooters, dressing up or playing in the small world area.
