F1

Welcome to F1 
 

Welcome back - where did that six weeks go! 

  
We hope you have had a great summer and spent lots of quality family time together. Mrs Barber, Mrs Walls and I are really looking forward to getting to know your children and yourselves during the coming weeks.  We appreciate that for some of our children it will be their first time into a setting like this, but please be rest assured we will be guided by them and how they manage and tailor their transition to this.
 
This half term we will spend lots of time getting to know the children, settling them all in and building solid relationships between the children and with ourselves.  We will be assessing the children in a fun way and everyday will be different!
 
In F1, we aim to go outside to do some of our learning every day, even when the weather is rainy or hot.  With this in mind please make sure that your child brings a coat daily, even if the weather seems fine as it can quickly change.  Please also bring a hat on sunny days and apply sun cream before the nursery session.
 
Here at St Anne's, we pride ourselves on our open door policy and will always be willing to answer any questions or queries you may have.  I will be on the door Monday to Thursday morning to greet the children and Mrs Barber will be available on a Friday morning.  If you have a query that may take longer than a couple of minutes please let us know and we can see you at the end of the session, when there is a bit more time.  Please don't ever sit at home worrying about anything, just get in touch.
 
Thank you for taking the time to read this. 
 
We are really looking forward to a successful year with you and your child.

Please make sure that all uniform, especially cardigans, jumpers and coats, are clearly labelled with your childs name.
Check regularly that ink has not faded or labels have not fallen off. 
 
Thank you!
 
Our weeks are very carefully planned to ensure all children reach their true potential.  The areas in the classroom are set up in a purposeful way so that each child can make progress through their play, alongside questioning by the adults.
We also spend time each day working as a whole class or in smaller groups, listening to and talking about stories, counting, singing songs, etc.  In this way the children will learn to take turns when talking and to listen to each others ideas.
