Bees Class 2019/2020
We are all very excited to be welcoming the new children at Longshaw and have lots of exciting things planned!
This is our class page where you can find out all the information about the term and any dates you will need.
We also have a class blog where there will be weekly videos, photos and activities for you and the children to enjoy.
Will you be my friend?
For the first few weeks at school our main focus is to ensure that your child is happy coming into school and feels safe while they are here. We will be doing this by getting to know your child, their likes and dislikes through lots of different circle time games and enjoying our provision together.
We have planned lots of different activities that will help us to get to know your children and also that they can get to know us and the other teachers within school.
Children will be joining in with lots of stories, number rhymes and games over the next few weeks. We will be introducing 'Helicopter Stories' to your children, this is were they can tell a story to the class and use their friends to act them out on our very own class stage. This is a super way to build up our relationships and also encourage the children's confidence in a new situation.
How you can help at home :)
Read with your child every night, talk through and discuss the story and characters.
Counting regularly with your child, both forwards and backwards. If they read every night they will get dojos in school as a reward.
Ask your child about their day, we do lots of different activities throughout the day and they will love to share.
Ensure your child's book bag is in school everyday.
Complete the homework given out on a Friday with them, this reflects the learning throughout the week.
Please ensure your child brings in their book bag every day.
Also make sure that you check these bags every night for any messages or letters that might have been given out. Please can you make sure that you label all of your child’s clothes, this includes all parts of their uniform, PE kits, coats and shoes, as this helps us to find the owner of the item much faster!!
We have PE on Tuesdays, please ensure your child's PE kit is in school.
You will receive newsletters and information from school regularly, however, if you have and questions or queries please do not hesitate to speak to me.
