Lovely Week

We have had another lovely week at school. A really big well done to the Reception children who have completed their first full week at school. We hope they are not too tired tonight! They have come into school brilliantly and are settling in really well.

Here are a few pictures from the week. Unfortunately, not all pictures would upload but we shall try to add more next week.

Playtimes

The children have really been enjoying using different equipment at playtime on the playground. This week it is our turn to have the hoops and the children have had so much fun with them.

PE

The children had such a lovely time in PE this week. We started the session by playing some games to get us warmed up. We then had a go at balancing the bean bags on different body parts, some of them even mastered moving whist balancing the bean bag. They then practiced throwing the bean bag into hoops. Finally, we ended with a team game.

Fred the Frog

The Reception children met Fred the frog this morning who only talks in sounds e.g. d-o-g or h-or-se. They had a go at guessing what Fred was saying.

You might like to try this at home with your child. For example, you might ask them to get their c-oa-t or find their b-a-g. Being able to hear these individual sounds in words is one of the first stages in learning to read so we do lots of ‘Fred Talk’ at school.

The Year 1’s continue to work hard in their phonics sessions. They all have their set reading days now. Let us know how they get on in their yellow reading record.

What a fantastic start!

The Reception children have settled in so well! We are so proud of them, they have come in to school amazingly everyday leaving mummies and daddies at the school gate so thank you parents for all your support and encouragement. The children have played lovely together and hopefully will want to come back on Monday for their first full day!

The Year 1 children have been amazing too! They have set a brilliant example for the Reception children to follow. Today we have started our geography topic and the children loved walking around our school grounds mapping out the main features. Have a lovely weekend everyone and we think you might have a tired child tonight! Take care.

Reception New Starters…

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for attending the ‘nearly there clubs,’ I hope your child enjoyed getting know their new classroom environment and making some new friends. It was lovely to meet you all!

Just a reminders for tomorrow.

The children need to come to school in their school uniform, we will be waiting at the main gate ready to greet the children.

Please can children bring a water bottle and a healthy snack to school this week. Fruit will be provided for the children as a snack from next week.

Children can bring in their ‘shoe boxes’ containing a few small items and some photos tomorrow. Please do not worry if you haven’t started making them yet, this could be a project for you and your child over the weekend.

I hope all of the children are looking forward to starting school! We cannot wait to see you all!

Welcome!

We would just like to welcome you all to our class! It has been a lovely couple of days with the Year 1 children and they have been so happy and excited to be back. We can’t meet to meet our Reception children at Nearly There Club tomorrow!

The Year 1 children will be starting their PE lessons next Wednesday (9th September) so you would have received a letter earlier asking them to come in their PE kit on that day.

It will be our Receptions first afternoon in school so they will not be doing PE that day, please can your child come to school in their uniform.

Unfortunately we usually provide a healthy snack at playtimes but this will not be here until next week so please can you send a healthy snack in for your child to eat at playtimes for the rest of this week and next week. When the fruit is available, you can still send in extra.

Year 1’s First Day

The Year 1 children have had such a lovely first day. We’ve enjoyed sharing stories together, circle time and getting know the classroom. Well done to all the children as they have been brilliant!

We are looking forward to welcoming the new Reception children in our class on Friday and Monday at ‘Nearly there Club’.

Here are a few pictures of our day.

Thank you!

We would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone for being so fantastic! We have been blessed with such lovely children and parents this year so thank you. Thank you for being so supportive  too as it has been a very weird and uncertain time. Thank you for your lovely gifts and kind words. We hope you have a lovely break and keep safe and happy. Take care xx
