Welcome to Elm Class
Our first days at school
Welcome to Elm Class
What a wonderful stat to the autumn term! Every day we are seeing happy, smiley children bouncing into school. It really is a pleasure to see how well everyone has adjusted to their new environment and each other. We would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents and carers for making the transition to ‘Big School’ such a smooth and happy time for their children.
The autumn term is now well under way and so we have been focused on building friendships and trust, finding out about shared interests and learning all the new routines for school. Our next topic of focus will be ‘Our Favourite Rhymes and Songs’. Each week we will be exploring a different rhyme or song and relate these to our learning. We’d love to see some videos of your child’s favourite rhyme. You can post videos of these on Tapestry for us to watch at school!
Although we can’t open our doors to parents yet, we are hoping we can still have lots communication with you. If you have any questions or worries then please post these on Tapestry and I will be able to call you for a more in depth conversation. We will also be arranging a virtual Parents’ Evening before the end of the autumn term so look out for a letter outlining when to sign up for a slot.
We look forward to sharing your child’s learning and experiences with you this year!

Fruit is now being delivered to the school everyday so you will not need to send your child to school with a snack.
Thank you for sending a snack in every day for the last couple of weeks. It has been lovely to see all the different varieties of fruit!
Information about Starting School
It was lovely to speak to you all this week and to get to know you a bit better!
Here are a few things to remember for the next couple of weeks. I'm sorry for the amount of information we are bombarding you with. Hopefully it will help things run smoothly!
- Water bottles - please bring a labelled water bottle to school every day.
- School bags - we will give a book bag to your child to bring home on the first day.
- PE days - PE will begin on the week commencing the 21st September and will be on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Your child will wear their PE kit to school on these days and will not need to bring their school uniform with them.
Also, if your child is doing a morning session and is due to be picked up at 1:15 you will need to pick your child up from the small gate to the left of the school (where you drop them off). If your child is doing an afternoon session they will be picked up from the playground.
Thank you for all the positive feedback and we're looking forward to the year with you!
