Welcome to Emerald class
I hope you have all had a great summer and have been able to enjoy some of the sunshine that we have had over the last few weeks. The Foundation Stage team are very much looking forward to starting the new academic year with your little ones.
A smooth transition into school is essential for children to settle quickly and begin to move forward in their learning. We have already started this process with the induction visits your child has already attended. The next phase of transition is a home visit. Mrs Morris and I will be completing these and we will spend approximately 20 minutes with each family. As I mentioned at the new parents evening in July, they are a very special time for your child and in my experience, the children refer back to when we visited their home, time and time again throughout their first year at school. They are a very informal visit where we can chat and answer any of your questions and enjoy a short time playing and chatting with your child.
We look forward to seeing you during the week commencing 4th September 2017.
