First week at school

05 Sep 2019


 

 
I would like to say a huge welcome to all of our fabulous children and their families.We had a super first week in school. We have been busy making new friends and exploring our new surrondings. Over the next few weeks we will continue to become familiar with our new classroom and our routine.
 
The children have already started to settle into school and  are very excited to be in their new environment. If there are any wobbles as the reality of routines and a little bit of tiredness effects, then we will reassure and help individual children. Children settle quickly once they start playing alongside their friends, please know that if we ever felt a child wasn’t settled or wasn’t well we would ring you, but if it helps we are happy for you to ring and Mrs Mallinson will come and check how your child has settled.

Once we are settled into school we will be introducing you to our electronic learning journey system, using the email address given to the School Office. If you haven't given an email address please do so we can share your child's observations with you.

Our classroom is set up so that children can access all areas of their learning environment both inside and outside. The children have impressed me with their tidying up at tidy up time. We have been working at tidying away during the session if we have finished using a resource, which is a really important skill. Our classroom will change and develop as the children do, we change things around and add new things to spark interest and learning each week. 

This week we have been getting to know each other and our school. Our children have shared photos and souveniors from their summer holidays, we have seen a snake skin, talked about farming. In the classroom areas the children have made play dough cakes, gone fishing, created their own farmyard stories and playing number games. We cant wait to discover more of the children’s interests and use these as well as our topics to inform our areas and activities.

 
 

 
 

 
 

 
 

 
Once we have all settled in we will begin looking at letter sounds (phonics), we will send home information. This is always a very exciting time for children starting school.
