Our new starters will be joining us in Foundation Stage this week. On Monday and Tuesday all children will attend Foundation Stage for either the morning or the afternoon. Then from Wednesday those children attending in the morning will stay for their school lunch before going home, while those attending in the afternoon will arrive intimate for lunch and stay for the rest of the afternoon.
From next Monday 17 September, all children in Foundation Stage will attend full time.
Our Foundation Stage teachers and early years teaching assistants have been busy carrying out home visits, so all children will have one or two familiar faces to help them settle in over the next few days. Most children were able to attend Stay And Play sessions before the summer break, so they will already be familiar with the Foundation Stage learning environment and the wonderful learning and play activities that are available.
We hope you all enjoy the start of your time here as pupils of St Matthew’s Primary School.
If you are a new starter in any of the other year groups, we would like to say a warm welcome to you too, and we hope that you settle into our school quickly.
