We were so happy to welcome all of the children back to school on Tuesday 7th September and delighted to resume a little more normality after the disruption of the last 18 months. Our classes have resumed without the restrictions of bubbles, parents have been allowed back on to the site and we are all able to feel a little less constrained! We are of course maintaining our strict hygiene and cleaning regime and staff continue with their twice weekly testing but The Firs is now very much back to business as usual.
Rebuilding our Firs family has got off to a flying start with our annual Tears and Cheers coffee morning held in the beautiful sunshine on the school field after drop off on the first day and then our special Open Afternoon on Friday. It was lovely to welcome parents to afternoon tea with the opportunity to then visit their child/ren in their classrooms and be shown around their new learning environments. The whole school then enjoyed a start of term ice cream treat at the end of the day.
We are really excited about the coming year and looking forward to all we can achieve in the academic year 2021-22!
