Hello and welcome EYFS, 

It has been so lovely to finally meet you all in person.  You are settling into school life absolutely brilliantly and we are all really enjoying getting to know you.  We have so many fun and exciting activities planned for this term and can’t wait to complete them with you as we learn and grow together.

EYFS – Term 1 Overview

Welcome Letter

Dear Parents/Carers,

It is my absolute pleasure to welcome you and your family to our school. I hope that you are all keeping well and that your child is excited about starting in EYFS. As you can imagine, our normal transition process would involve lots of face-to-face time for both parents and children and we are unable to do that at this time. We have reviewed our usual procedures and tried to replicate them as much as we can whilst working under the current Government guidelines. We are determined to do all we can to help you and your child feel ready for this exciting step.

As part of the induction process this term, we will:

  • Share a welcome video message from your child’s class teachers (please see below).
  • Share a PowerPoint of information about starting school (please see below).
  • Schedule family Zoom meetings where you can meet the class teacher (via ParentMail).
  • Issue a pack of information which will be available on the EYFS 2020 page (please see below) or available as a printed pack for collection on request from the School Office.
  • Invite you to ‘Story Zooms’ where your child can see and hear their class teacher(s) reading a story (via ParentMail).
  • Issue an electronic admissions form for you to complete (via ParentMail).
  • Contact nursery settings for transition information.

We are very proud of our school, the children and the values we hold and we look forward to welcoming your family into our Lydiard Millicent family.

Best wishes,

Mrs Carly Luce
