BLOG POST 2 - 18/09/20

The children have settled really well and are used to the morning routine of washing their hands and getting ready for learning. 

We are missing welcoming parents into the classroom but we can assure you that the children have made a good start.

As the weather gets colder children will need a warm coat for outdoor play. We encourage children to drink throughout the day but as we are a ‘Healthy School’ please ensure bottles are only filled with water.

Read Write Inc has been introduced to the FS2 children, this is the phonics programme we use and will teach them to read.  This week the children have learnt the sounds ‘m’ ‘a’ ‘s’ ‘d’ ‘t’ – if you would like to help them practise at home this video models how to say the sounds that each letter makes 


Homework will be given every Friday, please return the following week. 

The homework will include words to talk about beginning with that sound and has space for forming the letter correctly.

BLOG POST 1 - 11/09/20

We have had a very busy week in Class 1, welcoming all the new boys and girls to our school. 

We have been exploring the classroom, meeting new friends and getting used to the routine of the day.

At lunch times the children have been enjoying their school dinner or packed lunches – it is lovely to see how well they sit and eat together.

The warm weather has meant we have spent lots of time outside in the class 1 playground (we call it ‘The little yard’).

07/09/20 WELCOME BACK!

Welcome to Class one!

We are very excited to welcome all the new boys and girls to our school this week! 

In a morning there will always be one of us available on the playground should you need to speak to us or ask any questions.

We will spend our first week playing, making new friends and getting used to the routines of the school day. Our first topic is ‘All about me’ – the children will be learning about themselves, each other and where we live in our big world. 

We like to spend lots of our learning time outside so please remember a warm coat every day as the colder weather creeps in.

We look forward to meeting you all and welcoming you to the St Gerard’s family,
