Big Well Done

Well done to the children who have all been superstars this week. They have been so settled coming into school and they are really starting to pick up the new routines. Weโ€™ve had a very exciting week; the children have painted pictures of themselves, learnt lots of new songs, started our phonics sessions where they have been introduced to Fred the frog and started our number time where the numberblocks have been helping us with our learning. Weโ€™ve also enjoyed lots of time playing inside and outside the classroom. We were very excited this week to find a secret message left by the fairies outside (we think!). The children have enjoyed writing lots of their own messages back and itโ€™s encouraged lots of fantastic mark making.

This afternoon, the children helped to retell one of our super six stories, Goldilocks and The Three Bears. They had so much fun joining in and lots of them wanted to use the props to retell the story afterwards.

We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures and have a restful weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Overview of your child’s learning…

Hi all, your child should have come home with an envelope today after school. Inside the envelope is an overview of what we will be learning until Christmas, a list of our ‘Super Six’ books and songs that we will be enjoying, a knowledge organiser with our key vocabulary on and a letter explaining a new baseline we have to do and a change to the Early Years Framework. If you did not receive the envelope, please catch us at the school gate and we will hand it to your child tomorrow. Many thanks.

Reminders…

Just a quick reminder that PE will be on Wednesday so please can your child come dressed in their PE kit. Also if possible, please can you go through the dinner menu the evening before or in the morning with your child just so they have an idea of what dinner choice they would like. Also would it be possible to send a picture of your family in with your child. We would love to display these in our RE area as we will be talking about ourselves and our families. Thank you!

Welcome to St.Wilfrids

We would like to thank all of our wonderful children for a lovely week! We have loved this week and we are amazed at how well the children have settled into school! Thank you parents for being so supportive at the gate and allowing the children to come into school so independently.

We would also just like to say there is a slight change to next week, I (Mrs Dalton) will be here on Monday and Thursday, Miss Locke will be working on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Sorry to confuse you on the second week! The children will start full time next week and hopefully you have received an email informing you of the drop off and pick up times. Have a lovely weekend and I think you might have some tired children!

Here are some photos of the first week in school.

Thank you!!!

I would like to say a huge thank you for all of the amazing cards, gifts and kind words I am extremely grateful! It was so special to see all of the children’s pictures and messages on the e-card, so very thoughtful! I am lucky enough to be working in year 1 next year to continue to teach all of your lovely children and support them on their journey. Once again I would like to thank you all for your support this year through some challenging and uncertain times. I think you will all agree that the children have adapted extremely well and have always put a smile on our face’s at such difficult times. It has been a pleasure to get you know all of your children this year! I hope you all enjoy your summer break, see you in September ๐Ÿ™‚ x

Fun Day!

A huge thank you to the PTA for organising such a wonderful day for the children, they have loved every minuet of it. It has been a lovely way to finish off the year and so lovely to see such big smiles and the children’s faces ๐Ÿ™‚ We have enjoyed bouncing on the bouncy castle, learning new circus tricks, petting animals, playing sports and getting messy eating ice cream! 1 more day of fun left. Please remember to return any reading/library books you may still have.
Thank you, Miss Oliver

Last week

Hello, I would just like to begin by thanking you for your cooperation last week while I wasn’t here. Just a few messages for the week ahead.

As it is the last week of school could you please make sure that you bring back any Library books. We have recently invested in new books for the Library trolley which the children have really loved, it might be nice to continue this over the summer visiting your local library. If you have lost or miss placed your library book, we would really appreciate it if you could buy a replacement to help continue this wonderful project.

We will send home reading books for over the summer, it is really important to continue reading with your child daily to ensure they are building confidence and fluency ready for year 1. Please could these books be returned in September so that we have enough for the next year group.

Tomorrow we will be sending home some of your childโ€™s school books, these are so wonderful to capture the journey and see progress your child has made in Reception. Please could bring in a large bag or a bag for life for these to go home in.

On Wednesday we will be having a Teddy bears picnic, children are invited to bring in their favourite teddy bear and an extra snack for the afternoon, children will still have lunch as normal.

On Thursday we are having a school โ€˜Fun Dayโ€™ to celebrate the children finishing for the summer. We have lots of exciting activities planned such as petting animals and a bouncy castle. Thursday will be a non-uniform day.

PE will still be on Friday.

4 days to go! Thank you, Miss Oliver ๐Ÿ™‚

Keeping Healthy

We has a class discussion about how we can keep healthy and why it is so important, to finish with we enjoyed making group posters about healthy and unhealthy foods.

Space

The children have loved learning all about space, we learnt who the first man on the moon was and we have even made our own planets! We also loved singing the planet song if you would like to song along at home. Thanks, Miss Oliver ๐Ÿ™‚

Sports Day

The children had a fantastic day today, they took parts in several different events including; running races, javelin, shotput, long jump, relays and an obstacle course. The children worked well as a team and supported each other. We had so much fun! I hope you enjoy the pictures ๐Ÿ™‚
