A very warm welcome to our F2 children and their families,
We are so excited to be welcoming you into school. It has certainly been very quiet without the voices and laughter of all of our children! We cannot wait to see how much you have grown, if you have attended F1, and we are very much looking to meet you in you are new to our school!
We are currently having some exciting building work done in our Foundation Stage, which we cannot wait to see finished. Our new environment has been very carefully planned and will allow our children to access all the areas of learning in a calm and creative way – it is going to be amazing! Unfortunately, due to COVID 19, we are experiencing some delays and so we will be spending the first few weeks of this term in our school hall. The hall will be well planned and set up to cater for the children’s needs so please do not worry. Drop up from Monday 21st September will be at the door to the left of the steps as you approach school, we ask parents to wait on the KS2 yard by the wooden huts (far left), and we will bring the children to you at the end of the session.
The Autumn Term is all about getting to know the children, establishing relationships with friends and staff and ensuring your child/ren are happy. We have a huge focus on PSHE giving the children many opportunities to talk about themselves and their family. Our continuous provision will cover all the different areas of learning so there will always be something that the children enjoy. Although we have limited space in the hall, we will ensure the children have a good range of resources available to them – this will be continually monitored and changed or adapted as and when required. Autumn term is one of our favourite times of the year as each child’s individual personality comes to life in F2.
A huge part of your child/ren’s learning takes place outside so please ensure your child always has a waterproof coat with them every day and if can provide a pair of wellies which can remain in school that would be great. As a large part of the curriculum is based outside, we will not begin formal PE lessons until later in the year so please do not worry about sending your child in PE kits.
We pride ourselves on our excellent relationships with the children and families in our school and always operate an open door policy. Please do not sit at home and worry about anything, pop and see a member of the team or if you would prefer a meeting please ring the school office and they will make an appointment for you to come in and speak to one of us. Email is another way to contact us and we are always available.
We are looking forward to seeing the children’s smiley faces in a few week’s time. If you have any further questions please contact us. We cannot wait to watch your child/ren flourish as they begin their learning journey in full time education with us at St Anne’s.
