Hi, I thought I would let you know that the children love the new mat I purchased for the library!!!
From the first day they were lying on it and saying how soft it is. I have seen children playing hopscotch on it, and recently the older children have been playing "library twister" where they have made up bits of paper and call out for example "left leg H". The teachers love it because the children can all sit on a letter and have enough room to comfortably sit, or they can re-direct a child to sit on a particular letter (to move them from a child they are too chatty with). I have attached a photo of our Reception class all sitting straight listening to a story. Di Seddon - Library Manager
