Tuckshop Times!
This week our Year 6 pupils commenced their house duties serving in and maintaining the Upper Primary Tuck Shop.  The pupils are working within their houses in teams of four, taking it in turns to attend to their customers, adding the cost of products together and  then working out the change, all good practice for their quick mental maths skills!

Loreto's Got Talent
We held our first Loreto's got Talent break time concert. We had Fran playing the violin, Mar on guitar and Valentina, Seema, Santi, Gabriella and Lottie on piano. It was a huge success, and we already have lots of pupils signing up for the next one!
Lego is a great activity for children to learn how to problem solve and play together, whilst improving their hand-eye coordination. It also develops the children's concentration span and promotes creativity.
Developing fine motor skills is an important part of a child's development as it helps children do everyday things such as eating, writing, using objects and getting dressed.
Using jumbo tweezers is a great and fun activity to develop the children's fine motor skills, as it strengthens their pincer grasp, as well as develop their hand-eye coordination.
A great activity which can also be done at home!
