After starting the year in Year Two I was so excited (and a little bit terrified) when I was asked to become part of the EYFS crew. School was still so new for our little learners and EYFS was a new adventure for me too! Since March we have all come so far together. The children have grown so tall (sadly Miss Thiede still isn’t any taller) and have grown even more in personality and character.
It is unbelievable to think that when the pandemic started some of our youngest children were still only babies and that school was their first time meeting new people and being without their grown ups. We have all overcome so many challenges this year and I am sure that all the EYFS staff and parents/carers would agree that it has been made so much easier with the constant smiles, giggles and optimism that our little people gave bucket loads of.
The children have made so much progress this year! Little do they know but while they have been busy exploring all their favourite activities in the classroom they have been doing so much amazing learning! Listening to them talk so clearly to each other, solving problems and thinking back to what they have done before makes me grin from ear to ear! I am so proud of our EYFS crew and everything that has been achieved this year.
Thank you to all the parents/carers in EYFS! Your support (and willingness to send the children in SO many fancy dress costumes) has been invaluable! You should be so proud of your little people, I know I am! Also, a big thank you for all the appreciation you have shown for our Staff Crew and for all of the kind gifts today (they will all be throughly enjoyed in week 4 of the holidays when I don’t have to worry about squeezing into my bridesmaids dress)!
Good luck to all of Crew Thiede, I know that you will be amazing in all of your adventures next year!
You have been an total joy and it has been my absolute pleasure to be a part of your first year at school!
