It’s a new academic year, a new term and of course new children. It has been so lovely to meet with so many of the children in the summer term with some of their mums and dads.

We had two super Play and Stay sessions in July, where the children and family members came for a couple of hours and had a chance to explore their new surroundings.

We had great fun creating some self-portraits using natural materials.

The last few days have been spent visiting the children and their families at home and this gave me a chance to remember what they really looked like!

We are all really looking forward to Monday 11th when they start part time for the first two weeks. They will all start fulltime on Monday 25th when they will have a big reunion with lots of their friends and we can celebrate them beginning school and staying all day.

Our theme for the term is Celebrations. We will be learning about how they and others celebrate special occasions such as Birthdays, Harvest, Guy Fawkes Diwali and of course Christmas. Watch this space to hear all about it.

Very best wishes

Mrs Ives and the Reception team.
