As I begin my 25th year at New Invention Infants it has been wonderful to see the children back in school this week! No matter what happens in the wider world our school continues to be such a happy place to be!
Years 1 and 2 have taken their new mixed classes in their stride, they have settled extremely well and all working so hard. The air of calm in all classrooms is wonderful to see and the children have that twinkle of wanting to please us all - I truly hope we can have an uninterrupted year as our children have been through so much.
Well done Seahorses, Stingrays, Jellyfish, Bears, Dolphins and Monkeys; both me and all your teachers are so proud of you, keep it up!
Our Reception children have all tried their first full day in as half classes. They too are settling well, enjoying meeting new friends and all the teachers finally face to face! They have been so quick to learn routines which is wonderful and many children are confident to have conversations with their friends and the grown-ups as well.
Well done Reception we are all proud of how confident you are - keep it up!
Nursery have met all their parents and children on home visits this week and Monday sees the first of the transition stay and play sessions building up across the week until children are all in for their full hours. We have for the first time this year some 30 hour children and it is exciting for us to see how they enjoy being with us all day.
Last but not least it has been lovely to see all the parents, grandparents and siblings again safe and well - although we cannot believe how much the young siblings have changed over the last 18 months!
Thank you to you all for being patient with staggered home time - we are still being really mindful of COVID rates in the local area and Walsall and you have supported us again to put these measures in place which we all appreciate.
Our Autumn Newsletter will go out this coming week with all the information and reminders for things you need to know.
Take care everyone, Mrs N x
