Each child had an opportunity to share news from their holidays and throw the ball of wool to another child who did something similar. Eventually, we were all tangled up in a web of connections.
Second Class have been learning about games and toys from the past and some children were able to bring in toys that their parents or grandparents played with when they were children. This had the teachers feeling nostalgic, if not a little bit old!
We were blessed with an Indian Summer heatwave this week and as temperatures continued to rise in the classroom, we decided to take our daily DEAR time (Drop Everything And Read) outside on Friday. The strong sun created a challenge for some, who took to the shade, while others enjoyed the warmth while they read.
