This afternoon we listened to the Gruffalo’s Child story and thought about where the different animals might live. The older children helped the little ones to find good places to make homes for their characters. We are so impressed with the year 5 children they are really thoughtful and patient and stretch their empathy muscles so much. Some of our little ones are only 2 and are quite new to Rising Stars so sometimes they want to stay close to adults who they know. It has been awesome to see our older children persevering and supporting the little ones to build their confidence and encouraging their independence.
