Settling in

All of the teachers in Onyx class would like to say a huge welcome to all of our new children and parents! Miss Boyd, Miss Deakin, and all of the teachers have
been so proud of how well the children have settled in to school.

It has been lovely to start to get to know each child, and we can’t wait to help them on their learning journey over the next year. Already the children have made an amazing start! We have had lots of fun exploring the learning environment and learning rules and routines. We all had lots of time to make new friends and for those who came to
Prince Edwards Nursery to meet back up with their old friends.

Look at us all on our first day of school! Can you find yourself and your friends?






Once we had settled into our new classes, we first of all talked about our rights: we all have the right to feel safe and happy, to be listened to, to have fun, and to learn. We discussed what we needed to do to make sure that this can happen, and decided on our very own class charter. We agreed upon our class promise together and everyone signed it.

We then explored different feelings, looking at the characters from the Pixar film, Inside Out. We all feel sad, happy and worried at different times. We talked about when we feel different emotions and what we can do when we feel worried or angry.

The children have made a fantastic start to the year, tried new things, amde new friends and enjoyed playing, exploring and learning inside and outside. Here are some things we have enjoyed doing, recorded in our class floor book.




Don’t forget to keep checking back to see what we’ve been up to.
And don’t forget to let us know what you’ve been doing at home on the class email address. Please ask in class if you’re not sure what it is.
