Dear Parents and Carers,
We are delighted with how well everyone has settled into their new classes. It is so lovely having the unit full of children again!
The classes are;
Green Class Nursery Miss Dodd (Teacher)
Miss Pogue (Teaching Assistant) Mrs Beal (Teaching Assistant)
Yellow Class Reception Miss Evans (Teacher)
Mrs Cannon (Teaching Assistant) Mrs Lamb (Teaching Assistant)
Social Distancing/Health and Safety
We are washing and sanitising the children’s hands at very regular intervals during the day. Please remind them how to wash their hands correctly and not to put toys etc in their mouths. Can we also remind parents to keep a safe distance from other families in the yard.
As parents are not currently allowed in school, and talking at the start and end of school is tricky, we will be relying on Tapestry to keep in touch with you. Also in the event of school closures we will be using Tapestry to set work for the Early Years children. If your Tapestry account is not active please see Miss Evans to sort it out!
Please bring reading folders to school every day. They are very handy for putting letters and the children’s work in. The children will be able to choose library books to take home on a Friday. We appreciate that some of you are waiting for reading folders from Emblematic, so any bag will do for now!
PLEASE make sure that your child’s name is in all their clothing including shoes, coats and caps. The children can be very upset when they can’t find their jumpers or coats. Writing with a biro on labels works well and lasts a surprisingly long time.
We will be starting to revise and learn the Read Write Inc sounds next week and will be sending them home for you to practice. Due to Covid restrictions we won’t be marking the work but would like you to bring your folders back to school by Thursday each week so that we can send the new sounds home.
Please remember that water bottles should be named and contain only plain water.
Thank you The Early Years Team
