Reflecting on the first week back at school
The first week back at school has flown by. Personally, I had to quickly adjust to the school routine, which if I am honest was a little challenging. Despite all the preparation and sorting out, I was absolutely tired. However, I look back now and think wow that first week went quickly and I was tired but I still pushed through. How many of us reflect on our previous week and see what we have accomplished whether they are big or small wins.
During the first week back at school, I focused on wellbeing and learning through play. As the pupils were enjoying learning through play, they were socialising, interacting with their friends and using their communication and language skills to express their thoughts and feelings.
With my son, at the end of the school day, I asked him who did he played with at school? How did he feel? What did he learn? What resources did he play with?
These are the type of questions that you can ask your little one after school.
As we enter week two of all the children being back at school, I hope your little ones are enjoying their learning.
