Puffin class news @FP
Welcome to Puffin Class. I am looking forward to working with you to ensure that your child has a happy, rewarding and successful year.
Our aim is for all children to reach their full potential in a happy, caring atmosphere, where everyone is valued. I want children to become self motivated, organised, responsible and considerate to others and the environment. I believe that enjoyment and willingness to learn are key factors in your child’s success at Forster Park Primary School.
In Week 1, as part of the settling in process, we covered a series of activities to help familiarise the children with the classroom and the daily activities and routines.
The children did a lot of interesting activities which included exploring colour through painting. We also made photo frames with pictures of our first week in school. The children have been getting to know each other and the staff a bit more and are beginning to feel a bit more settled in each other’s company. They are also getting to know the daily routines and seem to be settling into the early years’ environment well.
In Mathematics, we began learning our shapes and colours. We also did some counting and sorting.
In literacy, the children have been recognising their names and practising their handwriting. We are so impressed with those children who are already writing their name!
In Physical development the children have been exploring the equipment in the outdoor area and have been enjoying playing and interacting with each other.
Well done to all the children for a very good first week!
