Making friends

We have had a brilliant first full week at school! This week has been all about getting to know one an other, making friends and exploring the environment. The children have been taking in part in smaller group circle times so they get to know a little more about each other. They have had plenty of time to play, explore the environment and find activities and resources they enjoy. This is important for their confidence, self-regulation and independence which are skillls needed to become successful learners. We have continued to learn and embed the golden rules to create a calm, safe and purposeful environment for learning in our classroom.

In writing this week we have practised writing names with the correct letter formation. The children were supported to hold the pencil correctly using a grip if needed, and then to copy their name. We then practiced individual letters with the correct formation. I have added the Read Write Inc letter formation guide to the downloads below so you can practise at home.

In maths this week the children have been introduced to the number block one. They each completed a cut and stick activity based around number block one and practised writing the number on the carpet and at tables.

Drinks and snacks

As a reminder, children do not need to bring any drinks or snack into school as these will be provided. The children will have milk or water for morning play along with fruit, access to water throughout the day and fruit during the afternoon. All children have a named water bottle in their team basket which is cleaned and refilled with fresh water daily.



The children really enjoyed their first PE sessions this week. On Wednesday we had PE specialist trainers from Crewe Alex help to teach the children. It was great fun! As a reminder our PE days will be Wednesdays and Fridays. Please send your child into school on these days wearing their full outdoor PE kit. They do not need to bring their uniform into school. Please send children in velcro or pull on trainers where possible so they are not tripping over laces.
