Half term is almost here and we've had a fantastic start to our school year. The children have all settled in fantastically well and are exploring the classroom with lots of interest. At this time of year we concentrate on showing the children how to use all the equipment in the classroom as well as focusing on our classroom rules. There's so much for them to learn about, as well as meeting new people and making new friends.
