Dear parents and carers,
Wow! What an amazing week!
We have been so impressed with how the children have all settled and adapted to life in ‘big’ school. This week has been full of new experiences for them (and us!); making new friends, exploring new environments, learning new routines and staying for lunch. The children have been very busy, getting stuck into various activities; painting and drawing activities, building with Duplo, singing nursery rhymes and making pasta necklaces, naming just a few.
Next week, the children will all start school full-time:
Out topic for this half term is ‘All about me’. We will start our topic by looking closely at ourselves and use different medias to paint and draw our portraits. With this in mind, we are asking everyone to send in an individual photo of your child(via email please). If this is an issue please get in touch!
On Tuesday 15th September the professional photographer will be in school to take individual photos of the reception children. Please ensure that they are in correct uniform on this day (and ready to smile!).
The children’s resilience has shone through in their first week at school and we are incredibly proud of every single one of them.
Have a restful weekend and we look forward to seeing you all Monday.
The Reception Team
