This week we have been mostly...building things together, making patches for our Elmer display and talking about what makes us special.
This week we have mostly been ...making perfume with lavender, building a giant dragonfly and painting portraits.
Welcome to Dragonfly class and the start of a wonderful year together.
We have been very busy over the summer trying to get our class ready for the children to explore and familiarise themselves with this week.
Here are some photographs that you can share with your child to show them what the class looks like inside and outside.
You will also see on the first photo where you will need to line up with your child along the fence for drop off and pick up times. Please make sure you only arrive on site at your given time as we are trying to minimise the number of people on site at any one time and just a reminder to use the entrance and exit at the top of Eastwood Road.
We have a lovely, busy first half term ahead where we will be getting to know your child and learning how to work together as a team.
In school for the first 2 weeks of term, we will be carrying out our initial baseline assessments and helping the children to settle into school and begin to make new friends. Alongside this, all our learning will be centred around our class animal and we have lots of fun activities planned to make a whole school totem pole with all our animals on it! We will then begin our first topic "Why am I special ?"
After the first couple of weeks we will send home a reading book for your child. This will be changed once a week on your child's "Reading day". Further details to follow.
We are really looking forward to seeing everyone in their new school uniforms and shiny shoes!
See you all on Thursday!
