We had a wonderful afternoon in Maple class today as Reverend Sue joined us to baptise our baby doll Alexia in our role play church.  We especially enjoyed getting splashed by the holy water. Some children took on roles of Godparents and Mum and Dad and later children carried out their own baptisms.

The children had their first session with JB Sports using balance bikes. They all showed confidence as they tackled a new challenge and made improvements as the session progressed. This is just the first session of six, so look out for more updates throughout the term.

Today the children had a visit from JB the dog. They listened to a story about finding his friend dinosaurs. The children then had the story read to them again but this time they had to perform some physical skills I.E balancing, running, taking giant steps, leaping and rolling to find the dinosaurs with JB. They had great fun.

The children went to Rand Farm Park as part of their topic 'Special Times' in RE. The children were celebrating and looking at Christmas traditions. They had a fantastic day and their behaviour and manners were impeccable. They are a credit to the school.

Maple Class Autumn Newsletter

 

Firstly I would like to extend a warm welcome to you all and I hope that you feel your child has settled in during their first week at school.

 

Over the course of the first two weeks we will be focussing on settling your child in, supporting your child in building relationships with peers and gathering observational evidence to enable us to build an accurate and up to date baseline of your child’s development.

 

We will be encouraging children to investigate both indoors and outdoors as they play and it would be best advice to ensure your child has a jacket and cap with them each day to enable this, whatever the weather throws at us.

 

Your child will bring home a book to share with you over the next two weeks. Although some of these books may contain text it is intended that your child is not encouraged to focus on that at this stage. Please look at the book together and encourage your child to talk about what they think is happening using the pictures as prompts. You can then question your child, encouraging them to find the answers in the pictures. The yellow reading record book is intended to be used to record how your child has got on with the book. We will also record in this book so you can see how your child got on in school.

 

Children will be carrying out short bursts of phonic awareness activities each day and coming together for maths sessions each afternoon. After the first two weeks we will begin to send home letter sounds and begin learning to blend and read. I will be holding a phonics open session on Thursday 28th September at 3.30 after school for parents unfamiliar with our phonics programme. I will demonstrate how a session is delivered to children, with their assistance, and advise parents how they can help at home. A reminder will be sent closer to the date.

 

May I remind you that there is a choice of fruit available each day, free of charge, and so we will assist your child with finding something they like or indeed trying something new. Children also have access to a water fountain at all times.

 

If your child is not eligible for free school milk this can also be purchased. Application forms are available from the office and payment and paperwork are sent directly to the dairy by you.

 

Your child’s progress will be recorded from their very first day in school on an electronic learning journal called Tapestry. This will be updated each time a new observation is carried out. Parents have access to the system and can also add their own comments and observations from home. Can you please ensure that the reply slip is completed and returned ASAP in order for us to set up access for you to open and contribute to Tapestry.

 

We are having a display board in the classroom on which we would like to place a family photo for each child. Could you please send in a photo for inclusion on this display.

 

Lastly, can you please ensure that your child brings in their green reading bag every day. We will place items for home in this bag such as letters and your child’s pictures and work.

 

If you have any questions or queries about this letter please call in to the office or see Mrs Spencer at the end of the day for clarification.

 

Yours sincerely

Mrs Spencer.
