Some of our new pupils have been developing their awareness of cause and effect in the multi-sensory room. One pupil said "wow, isn't it amazing!"
The best way to start out music lessons, is to explore! We placed all the instruments around the room and allowed the children to discover which they enjoyed playing the most. This will then support our learning for the rest of the term!
This term (Autumn 1) P.E will take place on a Tuesday afternoon and a Friday morning.
