Share A Story Friday - October 2021

This term, our EYFS Team have really enjoyed welcoming parents into the unit for 'Share-a-Story Friday'. It has been wonderful to see our children show their parents around and to spend time together reading stories. Thank you to everyone who has attended and we look forward to continuing with our Friday sessions after half term.

 

 

Big Red Combine Harvester - 20.10.21

This term our Nursery and Reception children have been learning the song, 'Big Red Combine Harvester'. Our children are really proud of their signing to this song and their singing, so we wanted to share it with you!

Transition

All children have really enjoyed their transition with us over the last week. We have been very impressed with our children’s independence, confidence and kindness, and we are looking forward to welcoming them all back this Friday.

Please make sure that your child comes into school with a named water bottle and fruit/vegetable snack, this will support them with finding their belongings throughout the day. Please make sure that your child is ready with their belongings outside the gate in the morning. This will facilitate a smooth and speedy start to our school day!

We will be sending a letter out over the next few weeks to explain when our Early Reading and Phonics Workshop will be. Please keep an eye out for this important information. In the meantime, we would like you to share a story at home daily to help develop a love for reading.

Children should be encouraged to develop their independence by doing as much for themselves as possible. This can include putting on their own coat, changing their shoes, tidying away their belongings and toys and helping their grown-ups at home.

PE

Our PE Days will be Wednesday and Thursday. Children should come into school in their PE Kit on these days each week.

Reading Books

Books will be changed on a Monday in Reception. Please ensure that book bags are in school every day to support us with 1:1 reading in class. We have also started to read in guided groups. This is where your child will either be read to by an adult, or participate in a joint read, as part of a smaller group. The aim of these guided group sessions are to provide our children with a range of reading opportunities and to prepare them for Year 1. Thank you for your ongoing support.
