Hello and thankyou for making me feel so welcome at Godstone. We have had such a fun few days settling back into school life after such a difficult past year. We have welcomed two new children into the year 1 class and the children have been a real joy to have. There has been lots of laughing, singing, dancing and everyone has settled well which has been really lovely to see. We have learnt the rules and the new routine of Year 1. We have explored the classroom and all the exciting things we are going to learn this half term. We have managed trips to mars ( in the role play area), dressed up and read some gorgeous stories this week, I even got chance to hear how fab we are at reading ourselves. I am so excited for what is to come and hope the children are too.
Year 1 is a huge change for the children but I am hoping with a start of small groups and continuous provision ( choosing tasks to complete their learning based around the lessons) else where that this helps with the transition for the children.
Mrs Brown and Mrs Quelch, our lovely teaching assistants, have really helped and enjoyed getting to know us and settling in. Over the term you will see us at the gate and at the end of the day. Please ask any questions or write in the home link books.
Ms Sowerby, Mrs Brown and Mrs Quelch
