Hello, and welcome
This week, we have been impressed with how well the children have settled into Sapphire Class.
They have been learning the routines of the class and getting to know where things belong. We have sat for some ‘Fred Games’ to prepare us for phonics and we have enjoyed singing some number songs.
Next week: We will begin our baseline assessments and continuing to get to know the children.
Please can ALL items be labelled this includes, shoes, water bottles and ALL pieces of clothing.
This week we have had a number of blazers with no name in.
We are already missing Bailey’s blazer whose name was labelled. Please could you check at home.
As mentioned all children need the following to remain in school:
Named Welly boots.
Named 2 piece waterproofs
Change of clothes in a named drawstring bag. ( Incase of toilet accidents/ wet weather)
Please can book-bags be brought into school daily.
Your child has been given a story-book to share with you. Please sign when they have ‘read’ with you and a new book will be given. This is a good opportunity to get them to tell the story using the pictures, predict what will happen and learn how to turn the pages.
In sapphire class we go out in all weathers.
please could all children bring in named Welly boots and 2 – piece waterproofs
Could we also ask that they practice learning to take their own shoes off and on.
A blog post will be posted this afternoon rounding up this week and what to expect for the coming week.
