Last week we read the story ‘The Huge Bag of Worries’ by Virginia Ironside. In Circle Time, we talked about the worries we had about starting Year One. We were worried about things like not knowing where our new pegs were, and forgetting the names of all our new teachers. Even the teachers were worried about some things! We felt better once we had started to talk about our worries. At the end of the week we each wrote down a worry, and we tied it to a balloon. We went up to the school field and let go of our balloons, and our worries floated away with them!
