 This week we have continued exploring our school. The children have been excited to go onto the playground at lunch time and play with their peers and the rest of KS1. On Wednesday we spent the morning in our Wild Tribe Space. We read the story of The Three Little Pigs together as we have been thinking about the number 3 in our maths sessions this week. The children loved working together to see if they could build houses for the little pigs out of all of the resources they could find in the area! 

As the week has progressed, the children have been talking a lot about birthday parties. This led to us decorating the home corner with ribbons and party decorations, ready to throw a birthday party. We made cards, banners, decorations, cakes and presents and finished with a disco after a child asked to listen to Abba!

 We have started phonics! This week we have focused on the sounds m a s d. Each and every child has impressed us with their ‘can do’ attitude and perseverance! We have been practising careful pencil control with a bit of write dance (We put on music and the children are encouraged to move their pen in time to the beat with lots of different movements).

 Don’t forget we are hosting phonics family learning information sessions next Tuesday! If you haven’t yet booked on and would like a little more information, please do not hesitate to ask!

 Finally we must give a big shout out to all of the Rainbows and Stars who have been fantastic during their first week of school with full days. We hope you all have a restful and relaxing weekend!

First full week of school!
We have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming a lovely new bunch of children into their first year at Bishop Bronescombe School. This week we have been busy learning about our new classroom, getting to know the adults who help us around the school, making new friends and finding out about our daily routine. Mrs Davy and I have been really impressed with how well the children are settling in and we have loved listening to the children share the contents of their all about me bags. This week we have been getting used to going into the lunch hall to eat our school dinners and packed lunches. Next week, we are looking forward to the children coming in for full days and we will be starting our daily phonics. 
Don't forget if you haven't already, book bags are available to purchase from reception! 
Next week pick up will be from our outdoor area on the school playground. A member of the EYFS team will open our gate at 3:05pm and you are welcome to come up and collect your child.
