The children moved up into Year One a little earlier than usual this year.  They had two fabulous transition days in their new classroom before their summer holidays.  This was a wonderful opportunity for them to meet their teachers, explore their new indoor and outdoor classrooms and familiarise themselves with the rules and routines of Year One.

The children had great fun exploring their new outdoor area, playing with the water play outdoors, mixing wet sand and chalking on the floor.  Indoors they had the chance to play in the different areas of the classroom, use the large floor number square game and get messy in the Creative Area.  As a focus task we looked at art work inspired by Georgia O'Keeffe and Paul Klee as we will be thinking about these artists in September during Arts Weeks.  The children either painted or used pastel colours to add colour and shade to shape pictures which will form part of a new display in school.

A fabulous two days was had by all and we are looking forward to the children coming back in September.
