Mrs McGhie: September 2016
Wow! The Base 1 children have settled in so well this week! The reception children have been fantastic at learning our routines, and there has been a lot to learn:playtimes, lunch routines, assemblies, tidying our different areas, snack times to name but a few. The Year 1's have been great at settling right back in to everything and have been very helpful.
We have shared some of the wonderful treasure boxes which has taught us so much about the children and their interests. The children have spoken so well about the items in their boxes and have listened well to others.We will carry on getting through these next week.
We have been sharing lots of stories and singing lots of rhymes and songs and I have even learnt some new ones myself!
The reception children enjoyed a great PE lessons led by Miss WIllis on Friday whilst the Year 1's joined Base 2 children for their weekly RE lesson.
The reception children have also joined in with all assemblies this week and Mrs Cador commented on how well behaved they all were and how beautifully they all sat. Well done!
We have started on the baseline assessments for both year groups and this will continue next week. The year 1's have also brought reading books home to read this weekend. Please share these books with your children and return when you have finished. There is a reading log in your child's bag too.
Have a restful weekend Base 1, ready for a busy week next week!
