Staff have been very busy over the summer holidays transforming the new Reception classroom into a welcoming, exciting and stimulating place to be. We have lots of fantastic new resources, including a lightbox, new computers, a tool table and home corner. It was wonderful to see the children’s reactions to the new environment and to watch them instantly settle and engage in their learning.
We have been blown away by how quickly the children have settled into school and are learning the boundaries and routines. Already, when watch and observe, all children are engaged in an activity of their choice, know where and how to access different resources, and can tidy up spotlessly. During adult led activities, the children have been sitting and listening beautifully.
We are very excited to get to know the individual children even more over the next few weeks, so as to plan according to their personal interests and needs. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to Reception.
