During the year we will keep you up to date with all of our learning adventures, share our achievements and pass on all of our news.
Over the coming weeks we will be having lots of fun getting to know each other and making new friends. The staff will be helping the children to settle into their new class, making sure that they know where their belongings go and what our routine is. We will be encouraging the children to be independent learners, making decisions about where they would like to play. Sometimes we choose to learn and play in our indoor classroom, and sometimes we choose outdoors. The children will also be starting their RML phonics lessons from next week.
