So, after a first week of home visits, the new children in Year R started school happily this week. The feedback from parents has been that the children are really happy and enjoying school. So a positive start.
Karen Gough and I have spent the week getting to know the children and helping them to feel confident and to get to grips with some of the rules and routines of the school and class.
The children have learnt about morning routines, lunch time routines, a few class rules and home time routines.
They have met the other classes, toured the school, learnt some new songs, listened to stories, engaged in number activities, painted, played with the toys, played in the sand and water, dressed up, engaged in role play and of course, made new friends. The list is endless!

The date for this will be in the school newsletter. After half term I will also be offering training for parents where I will help you to support your children to learn to read and write.
