Seedlings Newsletter

It is hard to believe that we are already in the final half term of this academic year! This half term is going to be a busy one with lots to do and look forward to.

This half term our topic will be based entirely on the children’s own interests. As the half term progresses children will be encouraged to discuss what they would like to learn about and we do focus our learning on the areas that interest them.

Morning routine: Starting next week - Monday 12th June - To further prepare reception children for their life in year 1 parent’s are now asked to say goodbye to reception children on the playground, where they can join the older children on the school field. A Seedlings adult will be outside to ensure their safety and take any messages from parents. Bags and coats can be left on the tables near to the decking and children will be able to collect them on their way into the classroom when the bell goes.

Nursery children will continue to come straight into the classroom.

Summer sunshine: Children should be protected against the harmful rays of the sun while at school. We spend a large portion of the day outside; please apply sun cream before arriving at school each morning. Do not send sun cream into school, with modern creams that provide all day, water resistant protection, the need to re-apply is not necessary.

Sun hats are a must for all children and should be in school daily. Waterproof coats are also still needed this time of year.

Sports Day: The day will comprise of activities and races during the morning and a chance to watch the older children compete after lunch. A more detailed plan will be available nearer the time. All children are welcome to attend. If any adults in your family are available to help serve teas and coffees or help with races please let me know and I will pass information to the relevant person.

Maths games and library books: There are a number of games and books that have not been returned to school for quite some time. Please check your child’s diary for messages asking for these to be sent back to school. Someone else may be waiting to borrow them.

End of Year Reports: Will be coming home later this half term for every child in Seedlings. I hope you enjoy reading them.

Finally; As children are quickly discarding their sweatshirts in the warm weather please ensure that they are ALL labeled with names. It is very difficult to reunite an unnamed item of clothing with its owner.

We aim to do the best we can for every child so if you have any questions, queries or concerns please feel free to pop in to see me or email me on n.jones@wvpschools.org.

Many thanks
