Welcome to St John’s! We are delighted to meet you all and welcome you into our school community. This term we will be focusing on settling the children in by introducing routines, getting to know each other and having lots of fun.
We start off the year with lots of activities around food with the children making flapjacks during their first session and lots of opportunities for investigating and tasting different fruits during our daily snack time. We also get the children used to going on trips together by visiting our Worrall Road site which is where our Forest School sessions take place.
We follow a ‘Planning in the Moment’ approach, so we are looking forward to seeing where the children’s interests and fascinations take us. Later in the term there will be the first of our Parent and Carer Forums where we will explain more about the Early Years Foundation Stage at St. John’s.
We will be carrying our baseline assessment through practical activities and games as we get to know the children and they get to know us. To find out more about the Statutory Reception Baseline assessment please use this link: Baseline Information for Parents
