We enjoyed another lovely visit from Sally and baby Oliver came to visit. In the previous lesson we had been discussing how people are the same in many ways, but there are also many ways we are different. Also P2 discovered we all have different temperament traits and every family is unique. The children wrote letters and created drawings for Oliver telling him what is important to them. We caught up on all his news and the children enjoyed how he loved crawling all over the room and throwing the ball. Sally told us Oliver loves his food and she can’t find any food he doesn’t like. At the visit Oliver enjoyed a snack in front of the children, this enabled the children to read baby Oliver’s facial cues on how he felt about the food and when he had had enough.
Here is a google form for people to fill out for the Free or Affordable bikes. They do not need to know how to ride a bike to get a bike, as we will offer free cycling lessons with the bike. Interest in cycling lessons is documented on the form.
If they are interested in maintaining and repairing their bikes, they can book Friday or Saturday courses on this Eventbrite page.

P3 had a fantastic trip to the Museum on the Mound last week. We learned lots of things about money including what was used as money 100s of years ago, how to make a bank note secure and we even had the chance to make our very own coin!
