Happy new year! I hope you all had a restful and happy Christmas. The children have been very excited to come back and have been great fun this week.

Thank you all for supporting the children on coming in to class on their own. This has made such a big difference to the start of the day as the classroom is calmer and we have been able to start our learning much more quickly. All the children have seemed to take this well.

Next week we have our parents project meeting where I will go through the plan and topic for this term. It would be lovely to see you there but all information will be on the Hedgehogs class page on the website.

Hopefully the weather will get a bit drier over the next few months and we can play more outside. We were out for most of the day today and it made such a change for the children to be able to use the outside space and run around more. Sorry if they came home a little bit more dirty, but for some reason painting sticks seems to be a new craze sweeping Hedgehogs class!

On a final note with regards drinking of water. We offer a drink of water or milk at snack time, usually 10am, and children have another drink with their lunchtime meal. When children return from lunchtime play they are then asked to get their drinks bottle and have another drink. Water is accessible for all children during the day and cups are offered and accessible if they don’t have a drinks bottle. I will try my best to encourage children to drink more but please let them know they can go and get their drink whenever they want. Thank you.

Have a good weekend.
