Hello and welcome to all of our new children and families in Reception. It has been wonderful getting to know the children and learning about the things that they have been doing with their families during the summer holidays. The children have settled into their new school amazingly well – we are so proud of them!
We have been spending lots of time playing and learning in our outside area; the vegetables, the sand area and the bikes are already some of the favourite areas to explore.
So far, children have been practising writing their names and drawing pictures of their families. They have taken tours around the school and even had their first PE lessons with Miss Bliss. They have really enjoyed playing with the fire engines and creating their own with junk modelling. They have also been practising their counting with the songs 5 Little Ducks and 5 Current Buns.
The next few weeks will be spent learning a little about our similarities and our differences and familiarising ourselves with the Bowmansgreen school rules, ‘Be kind, Be safe and Be Respectful.’ This week we have been learning about Elmer and why it is so important to be kind.
If you would like some ideas of games and activities that you can do with your child at home, please refer to our school website under the Learning, Phonics and Curriculum tabs.
