A great start in Little Elms

Well, all the planning for the 2018/19 school year is well underway and the boys in Little Elms have all settled in beautifully. It amazes me how quickly the boys settle into our routines and rules. Really, it all has to do with the number of previous visits and opportunities to meet their new classmates and teachers, that help the boys to settle so quickly.

Last school year we held two Story Adventures events, one Toddler Morning and a "Meet your new Teacher" afternoon. I also start the new school year with home visits, to each boy joining Little Elms. This means the boys have five opportunities to get to know Miss Payne and myself before their first day, which pays huge benefits. We are now in Week 2 of the Autumn Term and already the boys are happy and learning.

This year we have a varied timetable of activities. Some of the standards are there such as Music, French, ICT and this year we have two PE sessions. Cooking will also continue, every other week. I am also introducing a ‘Discovery’ afternoon. These afternoons will be left open for trying something new. This week the boys explored magnets. They all really enjoyed themselves and Miss Payne and I used scientific terminology...you never know what they might pick up!

This afternoon we are introducing our first STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) afternoon, based on the Three Little Pigs. Click here to view photos.
