At this time of year, we would normally have been welcoming our September New Starters to a series of Stay and Play sessions to give them an idea of what to expect when they join us as pupils after the summer break.
Because of the current restrictions which only allow the presence of Year R, Year 1, Year 6 and our key workers’ Rainbow Club on site, we have had to organise our new starters into smaller groups to come in to visit our Foundation Stage classrooms and outdoor play area.
These visits took place yesterday, Friday 3rd July, and small groups of parents and children joined us to meet the staff and enjoy a socially-distanced session of stories and songs outside in the summer sunshine. Later in the visit, they went indoors to see our outstanding Foundation Stage classrooms.
Thank you to everyone who came and for allowing us to display these lovely photos here on our website. Watch out for the New Starters button on our website header which will be launched next week – it will give parents and carers more information about plans for their children’s induction in to St Matthew’s Foundation Stage.
