P1P/P1S – Our First Days in School

Clipart,clip art,graphic,illustration,border - free image from ...Good afternoon,

Well, we made it to the end of the week and what a lovely few days we have had in our P1P/P1S base. Everyone is settling into class well. Hopefully you are all excited about coming back on Monday.

Over the last few days we have been getting used to our new routines and both Mrs McAvoy and I have been very impressed at how well you have adapted. Well done!

Here are a few reminders:

  • Our outdoor sessions will be Tuesday-Friday (inclusive). If possible, please ensure your child is suitably dressed for being outside on these days. This will start from Tuesday (18th).
  • Please ensure all personal belongings are clearly named.
  • Book bags can be left at home for the time being.
  • Only water should be brought into class for drinking (flavoured water is ok). Juice should be kept for break and lunch.
  • We are a nut free school therefore we would  ask that you please be mindful of the snacks the children are bringing to school.
  • The children are working hard on their routines. This includes collecting their morning snack by themselves. To help us with this, please put your child’s snack in their school bag rather than their lunchbox. By doing so, they will automatically know where to collect their snack from.

Please remember to keep checking our blog as we will regularly be updating you with our class news.

Have a wonderful weekend. Hopefully the sun will continue to shine for us.

Mrs O’Neill and Mrs McAvoy
