As we approach the new school year, Mrs. Goode and Mrs. Saxby, the Wrens’ Base teachers, are looking forward to welcoming the children in September. In preparation for them starting school, we have organised a number of events to support the transition from home, nursery or playgroup to school.
Admission Packs. Parents are invited to collect their child’s Admissions Pack at any time during the school day from Monday, 21st June – Thursday, 24th June. The school office is open from 8:30am-4:30pm. The Admissions Pack contains lots of information, including the name of your child’s class teacher and their colour team.
Stay and Play sessions. Due to updated Government guidelines these have been rescheduled. We are hoping these will now take place on Friday 3rd September 2021 in the School Hall, so please keep the date free. The session will consist of the children having an opportunity to play with other children in the year group and see their classroom. It will give you and your child the chance to see where they put their lunchbox, coat etc. and for you to meet us and raise any queries you may have regarding them starting school.
The times for the sessions are as follows:
Children in Blue Team 9:15 - 10:15am
Children in Green Team 10:30-11:30am
Children in Red Team 12:45 – 1:45pm
Children in Yellow Team 2:00 – 3:00pm
We ask that only one adult attends this session with your child. In the meantime, there is an on-line tour that can be found on our website.
Home Visits. These visits will take place from Tuesday 7th September up to and including Wednesday, 15th September and will last approximately 20 minutes. To enable us to arrange this, please can you email the office, email@example.com with at least two preferred dates and times on the attached form by Friday, 2nd July. Confirmation of the visit will be emailed to you on Friday 9th July 2021.
Starting School - The children will start school on different days and by colour team. This will be a full day and the children will need to bring in a packed lunch and wear their school uniform.
Children are invited to join us as follows:
Blue and Green Teams - Thursday 16th September only
Red and Yellow Teams - Friday 17th September only
All the children will then start together, full time, on Monday 20th September 2021.
Picnic. Parents / carers are invited to a ‘Getting to Know Each Other’ picnic on Friday, 24th September at 12:15pm. After the picnic lunch, children will leave with their parents at 1pm. Please note that all children will need to be taken home or collected from school at 1pm on this day regardless of the picnic. Further details about the picnic will follow.
