Week 1, September 2017

What a successful week we have had in Class One this week!  All children have settled extremely well into their new routine and it has been a joy to get to know some of our new intake over the course of the week.  The children have been up to many different and exciting activities including rainbow sand mark-making, painting, PE lessons with Mr Jefferies, number work, phonics sessions and even creating their own mud-recipes in our brand new mud kitchen! It is also really lovely to see so many children coming in to the classroom independently now; we are very proud of them and how positively they are entering the classroom each day.

A big thank you to all parents for being so patient at the gate as we learn all of your names and faces and also for ensuring that all school uniform is clearly named’. This has made things much easier for us all this week and is very much appreciated!

Reminders.

  • A reminder to all parents that children’s reading books will be changed each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Your child will be heard read by the class adults throughout the week so please ensure these come into school each day in book-bags.
  • Water bottles should contain still, unflavoured water only.  Your child may also bring in one fruit or vegetable item each day to eat at their snack-time.  We ask that you do not send in cereal bars/ crackers/ yoghurt covered fruit or other similar items please.
  • As part of the Early Years Curriculum, children are encouraged to work and learn outside as part of an ‘extended classroom’ in out outside area.  We have a saying in Reception that there is no such thing as bad weather, only wrong clothing!  We therefore ask that children bring in some wellington boots to keep in class each day, so that they are suitably dressed for all weathers.  Some of our best learning and experimenting comes from playing in the rain and with puddles!
  • Lastly, all children are expected to change for PE at school with a level of independence.  Whilst we will always help those who need it, we encourage children to ‘have a go’ at doing up/ undoing buttons and ties, before seeking help from a grown up.  We therefore ask that you practise this at home with your child over the next half term or so, so that they can get used to dressing and undressing with confidence.

Thank you to all for a great first week, it has been lovely chatting to some of you at the gate and I look forward to getting to know you and the children more over the coming year!
