We’ve had a busy first full week settling back in for the Year 1’s and learning all the new routines for Reception. There have been a few firsts for the new children this week, such as PE with Mr Lloyd, a fire drill practice and of course the individual photos yesterday and we were really proud of how they all coped, especially in their first week. Reception have spent the week getting to know each other and exploring all the areas available to them in Holly Class.
The Year 1’s have been fantastic at helping the new children to settle in and have shown how mature they can be by supporting them in class and on the playground. They have also enjoyed learning to use the the computers in the IT suite, recapping some maths and have completed some independent writing. Needless to say we are all a little rusty after the summer break but with a little practice it will soon come flooding back to them! All of the children have their reading books which will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday if they have at least TWO recorded reads in their reading records. They also now have a free choice book from our book corner to share with you at home.
Reception have come home with a wordless book to practice telling stories from the pictures and get into good book habits (page turning etc) and also have a free choice book to share with you at home.
Just a reminder that children are to come to school wearing their PE kits on TUESDAYS. They will stay in them all day, so there is no need to send their uniforms as well that day. Please do ensure ALL items of clothing are named. We have already accumulated a number of un-named cardigans and a couple of jumpers. Please see a member of staff if you think one of them might belong to your child.
Please also remember that water bottles brought to school should only contain water and should be named to avoid any confusion where the children may have the same design. Thank you.
If you need to contact your child’s class teacher please email firstname.lastname@example.org for Miss Jones and email@example.com for Miss Roberts. Any urgent queries should be directed to the main office via phone 235549 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a lovely weekend! 🙂
