Starting School

September was our settling in month in Onyx Class. It was lovely to see all the children again after the Summer and start to get to know them better as school started. We started off sharing all the children between the two classes and seeing who became friends with who and where children were best suited. This was a really good way of making sure that Onyx and, our FS2 neighbours, Garnet were both the best classes in school and all the children were happy. Some of our Nursery teachers came to say hi and see how we were getting on too.

These photos were taken on our very first days at school. Look at who we have in Onyx Class:

 

We also took first day photos of some of the teachers in Onyx and Garnet classrooms.

We had lots of fun getting to know new friends and remembering old ones. We also all loved exploring both our new classrooms and trying out all the great activities. Those children who had been in Nursery enjoyed getting back outside and seeing what was the same. Everyone made a really great start to school and all the teachers commented on how well and how quickly the children settled in.

 

The children also enjoyed it when we started going for lunch in the big hall. It was exciting but a little bit scary as we’d not done it before. Everyone did great though and all the lunchtime supervisors commented on how impressed they were with the children’s use of cutlery and sitting at the tables. Even Mr Sciezkarek came to see how everyone was getting on. He left very impressed.

Well done everyone on such a great start to school. 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.

Father’s Day Fun!

We all had an amazing time on Monday afternoon when we invited all of our dads to school to celebrate Father’s Day. We were allowed to invite any other male member of the family if our dads couldn’t make it but this time mums had to stay at home.

We had such a good time with our dads on the MUGA and ‘park’. Some of us preferred to stay inside the Foundation Stage area and play with our dads there. It was great to see our brothers and sisters in Nursery and Key Stage One as well.

A huge thank you to everyone who came and made our afternoon so successful. We had a total of 49 dads, uncles, grandads and big brothers there  across the whole of FS and KS1!
