Autumn One, Week Two

Here we are at the end of our second week back and Class One is complete with all 30 children now in class.  We are all feeling very proud of the new cohort in the way they have conducted themselves around school and in the kind and sensible way they carry out their learning each day and it has been lovely this week to watch them begin to form friendships with new children and get stuck into the many activities we have had planned for them this week.

This week, your child has very busy taking part in…

  • Circle times to discuss likes and dislikes
  • Painting in the art corner
  • Making ‘stick men’ based on the Julia Donaldson story
  • Learning about Autumnal changes and spotting signs of Autumn around the school
  • Collecting autumn leaves to create their own ‘leaf hedgehogs’
  • Trying out some number games on the class computers
  • Learning single letter phonic sounds and forming them without taking our pen off of the whiteboard/ moving the pen in the correct direction.

A thank you once again for your patience at the gate during home-time and morning drop offs as we learn all of your names and faces.  As you can imagine, learning parents, grandparents, child-minders, aunties and other family friends for each child is not an easy task but we hope to get a little quicker at this soon.  In the meantime, please continue to inform a member of office staff or class adult if someone new is picking up your child, as we will be unable to let your child leave unless we have had consent and notification of this.

 Reminders

We are very proud of all the children who have been leaving their parents at the gate and walking in completely independently.  Children are encouraged to enter the classroom independently in the morning and so we ask that you could reinforce this and remain at the gate during drop off times; the children will be greeted with lots of praise if they are able to do so and even earn stickers!  Obviously if your child is very distressed, we appreciate that you may wish to walk your child into class still over the next week.

Lastly, you may notice that over the course of the year, your child may come home wearing a badge on a Friday afternoon.  These are from our Friday awards assembly in which your child can win a values, effort or achievement award. Your child will be able to wear their badge for the whole week but will hand it back in the following Friday morning so that it can be given to the next person.  We ask kindly that children look after their badges each week and that parents ensure that the children bring it back in on the following Friday.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Enjoy your weekend everyone,

Miss Ingle, Mrs Holmes and Mrs Sabri
