Back to School

What a busy first week back at school! We’ve been settling in, getting used to our new routines, and taking responsibility for our own learning. We’ve made new friends, we have some new teachers, and we have a shiny new television in our Reception area!

Throughout this week, we asked the children to write down their favourite things about school, we’ve read through them and picked a selection of the best for you to read below.

“Sand” – Arabella

“Home corner” – Ellie

“Small world” – Nicole

“Fireman Sam” – Archie

“Phonics” – Attila

“Playing in the sand, playdough, and outside” – Jenson
