The first full week in school for pupils in Years 1 to 6 has been great! Children have settled well in their new classes and shown an impressive understanding of the new routines in school, particularly around hand hygiene and the new lunchtime arrangements. The morning bagels which we now offer to every child in school are also proving very popular!
It was great to have children who are joining us in Nursery and Reception visit our school last week and start to explore their exciting new learning environments. Yesterday, we welcomed children who attended our Nursery back to school and started getting to know children who are new to our school. There are still a few places in our morning and afternoon Nursery sessions. Please contact the School Office on 01274 541587 to find out more. Most children who join us in Nursery are with us until they leave 7 years later at the end of Year 6. It offers a great way to start your child's learning journey and an opportunity to make lifelong friends in a warm, welcoming and exciting learning environment.
We will be working hard this year to find even more ways to keep all families engaged and involved in their children's learning. All children in Years 1-6 have brought home their first school reading book. Spending 5-10 minutes a day reading with your child is one of the best ways you can help support their learning in school. A little reading time makes a big difference! Books will be sent home on Mondays and should be returned to school on Fridays. Teachers will be using Class Dojo to keep in touch with families and give snapshots of children learning in school. We will also be using Class Dojo to continue to share information videos and celebrations. We hope you enjoyed our first ever virtual Friday Celebration Assembly. Well done to all those children who have been noticed going above and beyond at Beckfoot Allerton this week. We hope you enjoyed your hot chocolate and have spotted pupils in school this week wearing their golden badges with pride.
There was much excitement in school on Friday as teachers launched their new theme for learning for this half term. From medieval banquets for our beautifully dressed knights, princes and princesses in Year 1 to Yorkshire Pudding tasting in Year 3 - we can't wait to see what the coming weeks bring!
