I had a lovely first day back today.
One of the new things in Larches is our 'Hydration Station'. This is a place for the children to keep their drinks bottles in the classroom. It is proven that drinking water regularly throughout the day can help children's concentration and therefore increase their ability to learn. I was very impressed by the number of children that had brought a drinks bottle to school, it would be fabulous if everyone had access to their drink throughout the day, not just at lunchtime so please could you make sure that your child brings a bottle to school.
PE will take place on Wednesday and Thursdays this year. It is very important that children bring their PE to school we will always try to offer spare kit, but this is not always possible. If girls are wearing tights to school then they must include a pair of socks in their PE kit.
I will be issuing homework journals soon, as well as sending home a school reading book. As always your support at home is invaluable to helping your child with their education.

So here we are at the start of a brand new school year!
I am really looking forward to welcoming year 3 back as my new year 4 and to getting to know all the children that are new to Larches. I am sure we will have a great time working together and I am looking forward to helping you become the very best that you can be.
I hope you all had a good summer with a mix of rest and excitement and that you feel ready to take on the new challenges of the year ahead.
See you soon!
