The Colour Monster
Our focus text this term in English is 'The Colour Monster'. We have enjoyed listening to the story and we are beginning to show a deeper understanding of our own emotions as well as others. Everyday we come into school we think about how we feel and we put our name on our mood monsters display. This has helped us to relate to the colour monster in the story. We have also enjoyed getting creative and making our own colour monsters and our own feelings jars. We have had a lot of fun so far!
Everyday we are beginning the day with some active/movement time. We have noticed that this helps us to feel more awake in the morning and we also really enjoy singing along to our 'Just Dance' movement songs. Here is a picture of us in action below...
