Family photos and favourite books

In the classroom we have a Home Corner. The children have really enjoyed using this area this week. If you wouldn’t mind it would be lovely to include your family photos in the Home Corner. The children will be able to talk about their family to others and it will be a nice way of finding out more about each other.

We also have a reading area and the children have enjoyed listening to lots of stories this week. As a display in this area we usually ask for the children to send in a photo of them holding their favourite book. Here is mine!

If you would like to send a family photo for me to print and display in our Home Corner and a photo of your child with their favourite book, please send them to the Reception email address.

Letter sent home today

The children have settled in so well and we have really been enjoying the first few days. We would love to begin sharing photos of the activities the children are completing during the day. Please look out for this letter in bags today!

Welcome Everyone!

We hope that you’re enjoying the last week of your summer holidays, we can’t wait to hear about what you’ve been getting up to! A reminder that school re-opens for all pupils on Monday 6th September 2021. We will be returning to our ‘normal’ school day, with a 08:55 start (Children can arrive from 08:45 onwards) and a 15:15 finish. We intend to maintain the ‘drop and go’ system for parents/carers bringing their children to school as this has worked well. School staff will supervise children in the playground from 08:45. We look forward to welcoming you to Woodthorpe next week!
