During the recent EDB enforced school suspension, we all missed having the children in school. The building is never the same without the buzz of happy children around. It was good to be able to use some of the time meet with all the parents for Parent Teacher Conferences.

We are now in full swing with our Christmas preparations – art and craft activities, cooking, Christmas role play, stories and, of course, practising for our upcoming concerts. I know the parents are in for such a treat next week.

Our K2 and K3 children made us so proud earlier in November. It was wonderful to watch them perform dances in celebration of Diwali. 
At Anfield we love to share in our families’ special events and, as many of our families celebrate during this season, it was the perfect opportunity for us to raise awareness of the Diwali festival.  In classes, the children learned about the customs and traditions associated with the festival and enjoyed making diyas, cooking burfi and designing mendhi patterns. Some also heard the story of Rama and Sita.

It has been a wonderful start to the new school year.  Our children are already beginning to settle into their new classes with the help and care of our very experienced teachers.

We are excited about the initiatives we are introducing this year. Our main focus will be STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Each of these elements plays a strong role within the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and has therefore always been an important part of our provision. However, focusing on these areas as a single entity will help to ensure that our children are well prepared for their futures in our ever-changing world.

Alongside STEM, we continue to pay attention to the well-being of each one of the children in our care.  Through classroom activities and concentration on our Anfield Attributes, the children are taught techniques and strategies to help them to manage a range of emotions. 
We also want to enable children to be able to communicate effectively from an early age and are excited to be introducing basic Makaton this year, a sign language to complement the children’s developing speaking skills.

We are looking forward to sharing a fabulous year with our Anfield children and their families.
