Welcome to Maple!
We have had a great first week back and I would like to congratulate the children on their behaviour and how hard they have worked. I can tell that a lot of the children are very excited to be in Year 1 and are enthusiastic about the new challenges coming their way!
We have had a busy week painting portraits, practising our handwriting, counting and ordering numbers, and throwing and catching to name just a few of our activities.
Please note that our PE days are Monday and Thursday, so the children will need their PE kits on both of these days. As it gets colder you may want to provide an extra jumper and jogging bottoms as we will still go outside if it is dry.
Maple class will have library time on Tuesdays, so please remember to bring in your library books to change,
Finally, Maple class have been introduced today to Monty the Maple Mascot, who is our special teddy for circle time and cuddles! Every Friday we will award a 'star of the week', and that child may take Monty home for the weekend along with his travel journal, which we ask you and your child to fill in with details about Monty's adventures!
Well done Maple class on settling in to Year 1 so well. We look forward to all of the exciting things that this term will bring!
Mrs Manwaring and Mrs Rai
