A great first week

Well done to the first twenty children who have completed a week of mornings only and lunch. The children all received an 'Achiever' sticker for being so fantastic in their first week at school. They have settled really well and have tried everything that they have been asked to do with happy smiles!

As you can see they have been very busy going on a listening walk, doing sorting and shape activities, counting, writing, painting and playing to name but a few activities.

All children managed to change for PE and had a lesson where they impressed us with their movement skills and ability to follow instructions. The shirt and blouse buttons will get easier but keep practising!

Next week phonic lessons start and a sound table for your child to bring in a picture or object to match the sound they have been learning. We will also be looking at some 'tricky' reading vocabulary and they will need to try to learn the words and sounds as part of their homework.

Just to remind parents of children who started this week that their  children really need to come in by themselves next week. The younger children will be brought in by their parents and it gets very congested in the reception area. Mrs. Wagstaffe and Mrs Butler will be on hand to help the children with their coats, books and badges. Also don't forget a water bottle if your child is staying at school all day next week.

We hope that you enjoy looking at a few photographs of what your child has been doing in school this week and look forward to welcoming the remainder of our reception children next week.

Have a great weekend.
