September 2020: What a wonderful start to our learning journey at Pennycross!

Marvellous Me! As part of this topic we read the story of Elmer and discussed how we are all unique. The children took part in lots of Elmer activities such as jigsaws, craft, making elephant chains, making paper plate elephants and completing programs on the smart board such as drawing faces showing different emotions and designing our own patchwork elephants.
Our first Writedance session. Writedance helps us develop our gross motor skills so we are then able to develop good fine motor skills. It is important we develop good muscle control in our shoulders, elbows, wrists and fingers so that we can develop into writers able to produce controlled, legible handwriting.
