A week in the life of Little Denes

We provide such an invaluable start for our little ones.  They have had a wonderful week indoors and outdoors, enjoying the sunshine and expressing their creativity. During the day we have the opportunity to be very messy. 
Mark-making and writing can be done in lots of ways! We get to know the alphabet and sounds, which is the basis for reading and writing. We have plenty of discovery time. We use different movements and practise using gross and fine motor skills!  We develop problem-solving and teamwork skills.
At lunchtime we learn social skills as we talk to our friends. We also practise using a knife and fork properly.  We learn about healthy eating and the importance of choosing the right foods to eat.    We play in the water and the sand with our friends. We learn to swim every week and relax in the afternoon with yoga.  We visit our forest school and let our creativity run free!  Finally, we enjoyed our transition morning to Reception where we will continue our journey as part of the Haddon Dene family.  We couldn’t be prouder of our little ones.
