Mountbatten class have started their life at Redwood Park with real enthusiasm! There were lots of timid, nervous faces arriving in the morning, however these were transformed into beaming, confident smiles as we left through the school gates. We began the year playing group games and getting to know each other and then explored the school with a hidden clue treasure hunt. Thursday was very exciting for the class as we had our first swimming lesson.  Judging by the amount of laughter and splashing going on, it was clear this might be one of the highlights of the week. We finished our first week on a tasty note, creating chocolate mug cakes and making as much mess as possible! We are looking forward to lots more swimming lessons, kayaking on the lake, and forest schools and cannot wait for our first full week next week.
