During our first few days at school we wrote our class charter. Our charter says what we think we should get to do and feel at school. We call these our rights. If we want these things to happen then there are some things we need to do. We call these our responsibilities.
After talking about our rights and responsibilities we recorded our ideas in the floor book.
We decided this is what our class charter should be….
Everyone then had to sign to say they agreed with our charter and that they were going to do their best to make sure they followed their responsibilities. Name writing can be a bit tricky when you’re first starting FS2 but we all tried our best and copied our name card if we needed to.
We’ve put our class charter on the classroom wall so everyone can see it and it will remind them what they agreed to. It means we can show our families as well.
On our first day of school we all made our handprint so we could make a flower altogether. Together we are the best!
Can you remember which colour your handprint was?
What have we been learning?
- about teamwork and working together.
- about the importance of following rules and routines.
What can you do to continue the learning at home?
- talk about other groups you and your child belong to, such as your family.
- talk about the rules and routines in your house and why it is important we follow them.
Look at us all on our first day of school…. it’ll be fun to look back on them as we graduate FS2 and see how much we’ve grown! Can you find yourself and your friends?
We hope the grown ups all enjoyed their special treat as well 🙂
The Summer is over and we’ve all now started in Onyx class and have been doing a fantastic job of settling in. Miss Parker, Miss Morris and all the other teachers have been so proud of us and how grown up we’ve been. We’ve been having loads of fun exploring our new classroom and the outdoor area. For some of us there haven’t been that many differences from Nursery at Prince Edward but some of us have had to get used to everything being different.
Look at the fun we’ve been having…
We’ve also been learning to use the self serve snack area where we can choose between water and milk each day and have a piece of fruit. We have to remember to wash our hands and put all our rubbish in the bins ourselves.
We also had chance to explore the new outdoor ‘park’ on one of our first days. We’ve been talking about how to make sure we stay safe when we are playing on it and what to do when we can’t reach the next bit. There were lots of determined faces as they children really challenged themselves to be successful. We also talked about how the equipment is only for use in school time when school adults are supervising. Please remember not to allow your child to play on the equipment at the beginning and end of the school day.
At the end of last week we went to the Dinner Hall for our dinners. It was very exciting to be like the big kids and eat our dinner in the Hall. Jayden even said, “School dinners are the best” and Mateo said he was going to have a dinner at school everyday! All the teachers, including Mr Sieczkarek and Mrs Ainsley, were impressed at how well the children coped with all the new routines. We loved seeing some of our older brothers, sisters and friends in the hall and we’re all super excited to go and play outside after our dinner with them next week.
Well done Onyx Class on a fabulous start to the school year! You’re the best! 🙂
Keep checking back to see what we’ve been doing in school.
We had a wonderful time at our Graduation back in July. We showed this video to show everything we’d done during our year in Onyx Class.

We hope you enjoy it and it brings back happy memories.
One of the most exciting things about being in Reception class is when we get to stay in school all day and have a school dinner every day. We’ve done such a good job of lunchtimes and everyone is really proud of us and how grown up we’ve been.
Here are some photographs of us at lunch time.
Not only have our dinners been yummy, we’ve also been having a great time outside. We wear the tabards just at the beginning of the year while everyone gets to know who we are and to make sure they take extra special care of us.
If you would like to know anymore about the free school dinners your child has please ask in school. If you need to know what is for dinner each day please ask in the office for a menu or look on the wall in the classroom.
Please help your child have happier lunchtimes by encouraging them to use their knife and fork when eating at home. It can be tricky at first but will get easier 🙂
Once we were all in school we had a visit from the Gingerbread Man! He left a note then ran off round the school so we had to go after him. It was an excellent chance to go and have a look round, especially for the children who hadn’t been in our Nursery.
We followed him to the Library upstairs, the Office, the Hall where we have dinner and back to Nursery to see Miss Hulme. We’d still not caught up with him so after that we had to go back upstairs to the staff room, outside and to Mrs Ainsley’s office. He told us to go to “the classroom which was best” and everyone straight away said our classroom! Thankfully when we got there we found him and he’d brought us some treats.
We had such a good time searching for the Gingerbread Man that we didn’t even realise we were learning where all the different places were in in our school.
Welcome to a brand new year in Onyx FS2 class at Prince Edward Primary. We’re excited to have everybody in school and have already been doing some amazing learning while we settle into full-time school.
Look at some of the fun we’ve been having….
Miss Parker and the other teachers are really pleased at how well we’ve been settling into school. We’ll have some more pictures of the fun things we’ve been doing to show you soon. Come back and keep checking!
