Newgate's Great Start!

First Day of School 2017 2

Welcome to Newgate!

We cannot believe how outstanding Newgate have been this week. Their very first week at school has been jam packed and filled with amazing memories and fun.

The children began their week with two transition mornings when they were reunited with their Bridgegate strengthening their friendships during playtimes as well as spending their very first lunchtime together. Roast dinner Wednesday went down a treat!  The children were shown how to get their dinner from Steve the Chef and then enjoyed a wonderfully playtime with them too.

Newgate 1st week 1

In class this week, we have spent time exploring our topic ‘All About Newgate’. The children talked about themselves to the group, focussing on key details, and then applied this to making a paper plate face of their own to add to our display. We were blown away by the support and encouragement that the children are showing each other during circle times; this contributes to their growing confidence and is setting the tone for a wonderful year in Newgate.

Newgate 1st Week

In other areas we have explored our classroom environment and taken part in counting activities. Newgate were also fantastic at learning the initial sounds of our Read Write Inc phonics program. A sound sheet will be sent home this weekend to support the consolidation of this week's learning.

Please refer to the homework blog as Newgate will need something for next Tuesday.

Many thanks,

Miss Bowler, Miss Howarth and Mrs Thombs.
