Thursday Together in Reception

We had our first 'Thursday Together' session in Reception earlier today. It was wonderful to welcome so many parents/carers to our school! The focus of today's session was 'Fine-motor skills'; parents/carers first attended a session led by Ms Shah about the important of developing fine-motor skills in the Early Years, before they joined their children in class. Here, the children and their parents/carers joined in activities such as using tweezers to pick up water beads, tracing, threading pasta, making a play dough family, finger painting, and many more. 

Some parents commented after the session:


'I like the idea of Red class mixing with Blue class, it gives my child the confidence to meet other children. Amazing outdoor play area!'


'It was nice to have information beforehand of what to expect. It was good to join in with the activities.'


'It's a very good idea to host such days for parents. I saw what great success my child has already achieved.'


'Thursday Together' will take place once a half term; keep checking the website for more information regarding dates!
