Hello, I'm a (nervous, excited) NQT taking a new reception class (due to expansion) and am looking for some tips about what to plan for the first week. The children are being phased in for the first 3 days and then full days on Thursday and Friday. I thought we would start with some basic classroom rules, a circle time getting to know each other and maybe some AD work based on the topic 'ourselves' - 'my family, what I like, what I'm good at etc' scribed by adults. I'm also putting together a basic 'birthday' display where the children will decorate something to add with their birthdays on. I've got 3 other noticeboards which I'm struggling to work out what to do with - a literacy / book board, a working wall an a PSRN one? Problem is, the boards are all really high up, so I feel a bit limited to what I can put up there. Last thing - can anyone recommend a place to go for advice on setting up the classroom? I've trawled the internet looking for photos, but quite hard to see how people have arranged their classroom. Any suggestions gratefully received - starting to panic a bit now! Thanks!
