They have practiced good sitting and listening. The children have taken turns to give out the snack and milk. They have become very confident using the mood board and like to tell Rhodri how they are feeling. The older children continue to help the younger ones and this is very pleasing to see! I am especially pleased with their efforts to say please and thankyou as we have been reminded about good manners again this week. The children have been reminded about how important tooth brushing is and how to brush properly. We have talked about washing hands this week as it is important after using the toilet and before eating snack.|
