Wow what a wonderful first week back we’ve had.
Welcome to Butterflies all of the older children. They have all come back so happy and settled and we’ve loved hearing all about their summer holidays with surfing, beaches, being on aeroplanes and enjoying time at home with family.
We also welcome some brand new faces to butterflies, it’s been lovely getting to know you all!
Everyone has come in really happy. Even though we’ve had a few tears, it’s been lovely to see the relationships that are already being built with other children and key workers.
Building those strong relationships with the key person helps the child feel safe and secure in a new environment.
This week we’ve had simple activities out, using the continuous provision resources. This allows the children to thoroughly explore the room, getting a feel for each area.
We’ve seen some lovely engagement, language and friendships being built already. I’ve attached some photos of the amazing scenes the children have created. I hope you’ve heard all about it at home!
Here are some of the areas around the room we’ve had this week so you can see what children have been doing.
We’ve been reading ‘5 little ducks’ and the ‘ wheels on the bus ‘between both ends of the room. The children have loved, choosing the props for the story and joining in counting and signing along with the songs.
We are so proud of how well everyone had come in this week and we still have more faces to welcome next week.
Just a few reminders!
- Please can you bring in wet weather clothes/waterproofs and Welly boots for the we weather. You are more than welcome to keep spares here on their peg if that’s easier.
- Please label shoes and clothes as children like to take them off and leave when wherever and sometimes they cannot remember which ones are theirs.
We will be providing these updates weekly for you all to read, any questions please don’t hesitate to contact your key person or Myself and Liz the seniors of the room.
