The children are all settling well into school life and are making lots of new friends. We are enjoying getting to know them all. Over the coming weeks we will be sharing our likes and dislikes, talking about our families and our favourite toys.
We are learning all about life at The Horsell Village School. We will are already becoming familiar with the class rules and routines. We will be creating our own class contracts together and thinking about all the important rules we have in school and why we have them. Our Value this month is ‘Friendship’ which we have been demonstrating brilliantly while getting to know our new friends.
Please send all children in with a named fruit snack and water bottle every day.
Please send in a named waterproof jacket into school each day.
Induction meetings: Otters – Tuesday 17th – 9.00, Foxcubs and Rabbits – Wednesday 18th – 9.00
Ideas for home

A typical day in Early Years
Start of the day
At 8:45 a.m. we come into the classroom by ourselves, we find our name and peg in. We then hang up our coats and bags in the cloakroom.
Lots of our learning takes place outside. Each of us will spend some time learning in the outdoor classroom.
We all spend some time learning together on the carpet.
After lunch we do handwriting and find out what we will be learning in the afternoon. Again we will spend part of the afternoon outside.
Ready steady go time
When we come into the classroom we choose one of the activities at the tables. When we are in the classroom we use our ‘Indoor Voices’.
At fruit time we make sure we wash our hands before getting our drink and piece of fruit. We sit down when we are eating and sometimes listen to music.
We have our hot school meals we eat in the canteen. Then we have time to play with our friends from the other classes.
We all go to the cloakroom and get our coats and bags ready to go home after a hard day at school.
