Miss Pitchford: September 2018
Wow! We've done a week and half of school and our Little Wrens and Reception children are doing brilliantly! The children are coming into school more confidently every day and doing a fabulous job of learning the rhythms and routines of a school day.
Last week our story focus was On Sudden Hill, a lovely story about friendship and making fabulous creations out of a simple cardboard box. Over the course of the week we were pirates, kings, queens and racing car drivers, just like the children in the book. We finished the week by making our very own Mr ClimbFierce ("the HUGE-monster-creature-box-thing") using just cardboard boxes and bits and bobs we could find around us. The children worked brilliantly as a team to create Mr ClimbFierce and then decorated him with the flags and bunting they had made! Mr ClimbFierce was also a feature of the designs being drawn on the writing table and the models being made in the construction zone.
The reception children have loved sharing their summer holiday news. We finished looking in the last few envelopes today, thank you for helping the children collect memories from their adventures over the summer, they recounted them beautifully. We have also enjoyed starting our daily fine and gross motor sessions, you will see the Little Wrens getting stuck into their Dough Disco session in the photos.
Just a reminder...please ensure all uniform comes to school labelled with your child's name so that we can do our best to match up jumpers with their owners at the end of each day! Thank you!
I hope you all enjoy these lovely photos.
