Wow!!! What a super first day our new Saplings have had today. All the Saplings staff are so proud of each and every one of the children who have joined us today.

The children have all settled incredibly well and have had such fun getting to know each other.

Today we have been getting to know some of our school routine and and have learned various songs which we use to help us throughout the day.

Today, and the rest of this week, we are focusing on the learning questions: Can you draw yourself? Can you write your name? Can you write any other sounds or words?

As well as these learning questions we will be focusing on getting to know our new environment and friends.

We aim to split the unit into two home groups by the end of next week, Acorns and Conkers.  The split is based on observations made throughout the first couple of weeks.

We really look forward to getting to know everyone over the coming weeks and months, and hope your children’s time in Saplings is very special.
