The children have settled into school very well and this week we are really looking forward to having them all in together!

This week will be continuing with the baseline assessments of the children. We will be doing circle time activities and singing with the children to help them to get to know each other better. We will have lots of different choosing activities out for the children and will be working with the children individually to do the assessments.

At the end of the week, we will be looking at 'who lives with us' and completing a picture of a house with our families in. If you could talk to the children in advance about this, it would be very helpful.

We will also be enjoying the outside area, weather permitting, and observing the children's play. With the weather being so unsettled at the moment, please ensure that your child has a coat with them everyday so that they can play outside with the other children.

On Wednesday, we have a visit from the life bus, where the children will learn about how to keep healthy. This is always lots of fun and the children really enjoy it.

 Remember that this week, the children will be staying for lunch and are to be collected from outside the classrooms at 1pm. We hope that all of the children will be trying the school dinners but if they don't want to, please ensure that they bring a packed lunch in with them in the morning.

We look forward to another fun week with the children.

Thank you for your support, 

 The Foundation Team
