Just to say a very BIG THANK YOU to all parents of our Reception children for supporting our transition into school! We are delighted to say, they are really settling well and enjoying each day as they begin to get familiar with new routines. They are confidently accessing activities both inside and outside the Reception unit. They have been especially excited by our ‘soft play’ equipment, and so far the weather has been really kind to us!
So many new things to learn and to get used to. Making new friends, lunch times, lunchtime play and so many new faces. We are so proud of them for taking this all in their stride.
This week we are becoming more familiar with the characters in our reading books, and we have been learning new letters and their sounds in class! We have shared literacy, number and creative activities. We are getting to know each other, and have had discussions about how we are feeling in our new classes. We have a very special class ‘cuddly’ called ‘Jigsaw Jenny’ which we pass her around the circle during carpet times. Everyone has time to share their feelings and any worries they might have, with everyone.
We also had our class photographs taken and can’t wait to see them in the local newspaper.
Next week we are going to be making something very messy! We can’t wait to find out what that will be?
