P2 Roots of Empathy- Latest News

Last month P2 have been discovering how babies understand long before we realise, so it is very important to communicate and respond to babies. The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit from baby Oliver and his mum, he was showing us how he communicates his feelings and wishes to his mum Sally with body gestures, facial cues and making a variety of sounds. The children sang nursery rhymes to Oliver and created a book of their drawings which was presented to Oliver, of their favourite nursery rhymes and songs. In addition P2 were learning how to read baby Oliver’s emotions and this helps us to read each other’s emotions.

The children were so excited to see how active and confident Oliver has become since his last visit. He was crawling all over the green blanket and was delighted when big sister Chloe joined us.
