In particularly, we have had a couple of extended learning sessions in which [...]

A lovely morning with class one and stepping stones!

On Friday morning, Stepping Stones came in to visit class one. The class one children performed a song to Stepping Stones, and then we all made our own shaker instrument! We came back together at the end to play the song together and use our shakers! It was great fun! :)

Outdoor learning

Stepping stones have been making the most out of the sunny weather. We have taken the opportunity to take our learning outside in the beautiful sunshine!

In stepping stones we have been working on number recognition and ordering, using our number cards and dinosaur spot cards

Stepping Stones have been outside enjoying the snow! We have been looking at the patterns we can spot in the environment, we found a pretty spider web! "I can see circles in it." "I'm catching the snow with my tongue!"

Stepping Stones visit class 1!

We had a great time visiting Miss Smale and all the children in class 1 yesterday!

Our favourite songs

Today at Stepping Stones we have been sharing some of our favourite songs. The children all loved joining in with this well known track from the Disney film Frozen. They told us how they listen to it all the time in their mummies cars.
