WELCOME TO FARMILO FOUNDATION

We'll be spending the next two weeks getting to know one another properly and settling into our lovely Blue Group or Yellow Group.

We will also be learning all about our school rules:

• Be kind and thoughtful
• Be safe and responsible
• Celebrate difference
• Be polite and listen
• Work and learn together

As well as looking at all the areas in the unit and learning how to play and share them, and tidy away together, we will be learning where we need to be if the fire alarm were to sound.

Parents, if you have anything you need to discuss about your child's settling in, please come and have a chat, we'd love to help.
