Just a reminder that when I have welcomed the children in the morning I close the side wooden gate. If this is closed when you arrive at school please bring your child to the main entrance to be signed in. Please do not open the gate. Thank you
Also a plea that you name all clothing. We have a few jumpers and cardigans without names. Thank you.
Just a reminder that is it our welcome assembly this Friday at 9 am. this is a special time for our new Reception children and their families to be welcomed into the school family. It would be lovely to see as many of you as possible. The assembly will last about half an hour.
On Wednesday I am planning to take the children down to our school woods to have a look around. Please could your child bring in a pair of named wellies in a carrier bag so that they can get changed into them in the afternoon. We do have some spare wellies in school if you do not have a pair at home.
This week we have started to introduce more structure to our days and the children have had their first phonics sessions and maths mastery session today. They were all brilliant and listened and participated well in both of these sessions.
From next week our PE session is changing from Friday to Monday afternoon.
I hope you are getting to hear all about what we are doing in school.
The children have taken very well to full time and although are beginning to show signs of tiredness are trying their hands at all the activities on offer throughout the day. They are coping well with all of our routines and are already becoming very independent, which is great. Hopefully they are coming home and telling you all about what they have been up to !
I am looking forward to posting photographs on our blog so that you can see what is actually going on. We are just waiting for all the official forms to be returned before I have the go ahead. So watch this space. I will attempt to post on the blog once a week.
Just some information about the start of the day. When the morning bell goes the children can make their way to the side gate where I will meet them and open the gate. If we can work towards them being left here and coming in on their own by next week this would be great. They will be supported by the adults in the classroom to sort themselves out and to settle happily. If you happen to arrive after the bell and the side gate is closed please do not open it but instead enter school through the main entrance and sign your child in at the office.
Don’t forget we are always available if you have any queries or questions.
