Welcome to WCPS
I would like to say a big welcome to all the new families who are joining WCPS. Your child should have received a letter in the post today to say hello from their new teachers. I hope they enjoy reading it. There are a few photos to help your child become familiar with the setting and more information will soon be available here through the blog and also on twitter.
WCPS Foundation stage is a 2 form entry setting. Your child will be placed in either Class 1 or Class 2 and will be assigned their own key worker throughout their time in foundation stage. Although they begin their school day in one classroom we do work as a unit and children are encouraged to play and learn across both F2 classrooms during the school day where they have access to a variety of resources. Children also have access to our wonderful outdoor classroom throughout the day which we use whatever the weather!
I have just posted a video of a tour of the outdoor area led by our Head Teacher Mrs Paddock. Head over to our twitter page to have a look.
Starting tomorrow I will be posting weekly challenges for children to take part in to help them get ready for starting school. I hope you will join in and post photos on our twitter page or as comments here on the blog.
I will shortly be in touch with all families via telephone to welcome you personally to school and I will also try to answer any questions you might have. Although this is a challenging time for everyone at the moment at WCPS we are determined to give your child a high quality transition to full time school.
Please get in touch if you have anything you would like to discuss.
