A warm welcome to all our wonderful children and their families! The children are settling in so well and they have adapted to the routine of school very well, indeed!
There are 32 children in our class and there are lots of routines and rules to follow. Please help your child to become more independent by supporting him/her with self care, such as putting on (or taking off) their coat, using the toilet, washing hands and eating with a knife and fork (hot dinners) or opening packets (packed lunch).
Each week I send home a newsletter, which will contain tips and ideas of how to best support your child's learning at home. Just ten minutes each night really will make the world of difference to what your child can achieve this academic year.
Our first topic begins with the text 'Elmer and the Rainbow'. The children will be exploring weather, feelings, colours and the artist Kandinsky amongst many other activities and learning experiences. You can hep your child become familiar with the character of Elmer by sharing one or more of the many Elmer books.
