Willow Class’ first week at school 

The children have had a fantastic first week at school. They have come in very sensibly and settled quickly. The children have learnt to put their things away and are beginning to understand the routines throughout the school day. They have enjoyed going on the playground at playtime and lunchtime, especially those with older siblings. At lunchtimes the children have been carrying their own meals to the tables and trying lots of new foods. We will continue to work on using cutlery in school, if you could do the same at home that would really help them. Our learning this week has been based around ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We have been retelling the story, drawing pictures and doing lots of building with different objects.   

We will be holding a ‘Six weeks in’ meeting on the afternoon of 11th October. During this session we will explain more about happens in the classroom and how you can support at home. If you have any questions or concerns about how your child has settled in, please speak to Mrs Morton or Mrs Hill at the end of the day. Thank you for all of your support and for making the start of the year such a positive one for all of the children.
