The Reception children have all made an excellent start to the school year. It's been wonderful to see how happy and confident the children have been when arriving at school and they are all settling quickly into their new classrooms.
Our focus this week has been on getting to know each other, learning new rules and routines and how to use the different areas of our indoor and outdoor classrooms. We have shared lots of stories, sung songs, played inside and outside and drawn pictures of ourselves.
One of the highlights has been Dough Disco to help build strength in our fingers. Ask your child to tell you about some of the Dough Disco moves e.g. roll it, splat it, pinch it.
We will be listening to, acting out and retelling the story, We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. We will be making connections with this story by focusing on positional language e.g. under, over, on, in.
The children will be staying for lunch so there will be more new routines to learn.
Please ensure you have returned your child's lunch choices and a signed copy of the Intimate Care Consent Form.
Next week, the Reception children will be having lunch in school and should be collected between 12:45 - 1pm.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Mrs Funnell, Mrs Gillo, Mrs Tozer and the EYFS Team
