September 2019

Welcome to school everybody – we have been very impressed by how brilliantly you have all settled in. Well done! Our transition period has been working very well with all of the children happy and settled in school. Thank you for your support with this.

Our topic this half term is ‘What is it like to be me?’ We will be investigating different aspects of our lives, such as how we have changed and developed since we were born; our likes and dislikes; what our families are like and where we live. Of course, we will also respond to the children’s interests and follow these up where appropriate too.

Once the children are in school full-time, we will start work on Rainbow Readers, Reading Books and Phonics. At this time, we will invite you all in for a meeting to support you in supporting your child. I will update you with a date for this as soon as it is decided, but it will be at the end of the school day, before you collect your child.

If you look on the school calendar, you will find the dates for events like Stay and Play – including timings; Harvest assembly and even our Christmas production! (Although you may not want to start thinking about that yet!) We hope that you will find the calendar a useful tool to help guide you through the year. The School App is also really helpful with plenty of reminders to support you.

Below this letter, on our class pages, you will find a Topic Web and Knowledge Organiser, which we hope you will find useful guides to what we are learning about this half-term. Alongside these, we will post useful links and other things that might be helpful for you.
