Hi Class 1!
I just wanted to say that we cannot WAIT to welcome you all back to school on Wednesday :) We are so looking forward to seeing you and hearing lots about what you've been up to in your summer holidays! I hope you've had lots of fun!
Everyone has got lots of exciting things planned for you when you come back to school and they have been busy getting everything ready for you in your classroom. I've taken a photograph of your classroom too so you can see how the tables and chairs are laid out in there.
I can't believe that you are all getting so big and ready to start school in Reception already! This year, we have got lots of Reception children in our class so you will have lots and lots of new friends! We're really excited to be welcoming back our nursery children and some new nursery children too. We're going to have so much fun together!
Now that you are all getting so grown up, once you've said 'goodbye' to your grown up on the playground in the morning, you will come into school through the patio door on our outdoor area. That's the way that we will take you to meet your grown up when it's home time too.
Each classroom has been given its own toilet block to use but yours is already in your classroom so you won't have to go far!
There will be lots of new rules and routines to think about once you are back at school but please don't worry about a thing. We are all here to help you settle back into school quickly and calmly and we will look after you as we always have :) We will still be having our breaktimes and lunchbreaks outside where you can play with the children in your class and although the way in which we do some things will be slightly different, most things will actually be the same! There will be plenty of toys to play with indoors and outdoors and we will be doing our number time and phonics as usual each morning. The afternoons will be filled with lots of fun topic activities and you'll be doing PE too!
It's bound to feel a little bit strange coming back to school after some of you have been at home for so long and you might have a few flutters in your tummies but don't worry. It's perfectly natural to feel this way and we will spend lots of time talking about what we feel nervous/excited about in those first few days next week so that little worries don't become big worries.
You are all my little Pilsley superstars and I'll be so excited to open the gate on Wednesday and welcome back those of you who have been to school/nursery before as well as all our new children.
