Welcome to Bluebell Class Webpage!
Wow! What an AMAZING start the new Bluebell children have had to their school life! Our first day was a really wondeful day. The children were all enthusiastic, happy and so so brilliant! I can't wait to see how they all grow and learn over the coming months - such exciting times!
For the children's first term at school our topic will be...
'Why is it good to be me?'
We will be learning all about what makes us the individuals that we are and how we are the same but also how we are different from other people. We will be learning about the rules and routines of big school and how to keep ourselves healthy and safe.
We will start learning our phonics too this term. We will start with Phase 1, which your child will have done at nursery or pre-school. The timescale is fluid but by half term I would expect that we will have moved onto Phase 2 which is when the children start to learn letters and sounds for reading and writing. I will be running a parent workshop to help support those of you who may not be that confident in helping your child at home.
Please remember that much of our learning will take place outside and the external door will need to remain open in our indoor classroom to ensure ventilation. Children therefore need to come to school in layers (under their uniform), waterproof coats and wellies (which will need to remain in school).
I understand that under the current restrictions it is difficult for parents to share information and ask questions as they drop off and pick up their children. Please feel that you can contact me personally on the following email address; firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thank you for sending in your children so ready and eager for school! It's going to be a good year!
