We hope you all had a good weekend and the children weren't too tired after their first week of full days!
This week we are reading the story 'A Squash and a Squeeze' as we are sticking with the Julia Donaldson theme. The children are also going to watch The Gruffalo and we are going to have a discussion about how it is similar or different to the book.
We are starting something called 'Marvellous Me' where we choose a child to be 'Marvelous Me' for the week. They get to wear a medal, sit in a special chair, be at the front of the line and take the register every day. We have a class discussion about what makes the child who has been chosen marvellous, this is to encourage positive self esteem and it helps to build confidence. All the children will get a turn at this throughout the year.
We are continuing to assess the children to see what stage they are at in EYFS. While we are doing this the children have free flow play both inside and in both classrooms.
There is an open afternoon on Thursday from 2:00 until 3:30 - this is a chance for you to drop into school and see the children in the classrooms or in the outside area. There is no 'work' as such to show you yet so it's just an informal afternoon where you can spend time in school and chat to the children and adults. Home time is the same as normal
Have a good week!
