We had a wonderful last afternoon in Reception today. Mr Siezckarek arranged for a wonderful treat for the whole school. Everyone in school got an ice cream to say well done for such a great year! 🙂
As you can see we loved them. Then it was back to the classroom to get ready for our last home time in Foundation Stage and to get ready to turn into Year Ones.
A special magic curtain appeared and we all walked through it. It turned us into proper Year Ones (no more practising) so when we come back in September we’re in Miss Breeze’s Y1 Topaz. We can’t wait! Miss Parker, Miss Deakin and Miss Hukin said we’ve got to make sure we pop back into Onyx class and tell everyone how we’re getting on.
The teachers would like to say another huge well done to all the children for such an amazing year. You’ve all grown so much and learnt something new everyday. We so all so proud of you all and are sure you’ll continue to progress just as much in Year One.
Have a wonderful Summer 🙂
Today we had our Graduation Ceremony to celebrate completing Foundation Stage and being ready to move to Key Stage One. It was great to see so many families there, we only had standing room left!
First the children each talked about their favourite things in Foundation Stage or something they were looking forward too. Here are some of their comments…
Then the children each got their certificate and a surprise from Mr Siezckarek while everyone clapped to say well done.
Everybody was excited to see their surprises.
Finally, we watched the special video to look back on our time in Foundation Stage this year. If you want to watch it again it is on the school website. You can find it quickly by clicking on this link.
Well done everybody on such a good year. We’re all very proud of you and will miss you when you go to Year One. We know you’ll be superstars!
As we get ready for being Y1s we’ve been to our new classes a few times to have a practice. It’s been great to meet our new teachers properly, to explore our new classrooms and to see which other children will be in our new class.
There are two Y1 classes – Jet class with Miss Mason and Mrs Raynes and Topaz class with Mrs Ainsley (Mon/Tues), Mrs Wells (Wed-Fri) and Mrs Pym. We’ll also see Miss Morris in Jet class and Miss Deighton and Mrs Reed in Topaz class.
Look at some of the fun things we did when we went to practice being Y1s.
We we took our new teachers special presents when we went to visit so they’ll be up in our classrooms when we start in Y1 for real. We had to do good teamwork to each contribute to the finished artwork.
We had a great time in Y1 and are excited for September when we get to go to our new classrooms everyday.
Parents/carers- if you’ve any questions about your child starting in Y1 please ask either the teachers in Onyx class or you could walk round to see the Y1 teachers at home time by their classrooms.
