16th December 2021

This week the children have been busy with lots of Christmas activities. They have decorated the tree; made reindeer food, candy canes and wreaths; visited the elf shop and had a Christmas party. They have also been keeping an eye out for our elf Bing and his friend Ping, who have bought them gifts this week. They have enjoyed the stories from the class advent calendar, as well as the Polar Express and Jesus' Christmas party.

This week the children have been very busy. They have been investigating forces (pic with track), making their Christmas cards and rehearsing our Christmas performance. We have also debated whether a dragon can be a doctor and our children have thoroughly enjoyed keeping an eye out for our very mischievous Elf, Bing.

Shared craft activity 10th December

Our Nursery and Reception children enjoyed coming together for a shared craft morning last week. During this session, all children made a Christmas wreath. We were so pleased to see the children working together and applying their creativity skills.

5th November - Big Art

Reception and Nursery worked together to create a big Early Years Town. Every child created their own person using different craft materials and different colours. The children then worked in smaller groups to create different parts of our town; numicon houses, hedgehogs, flowers, a tree, the letters, the sky and grass.

Some of the comments from our children were:

'Spiky hedgehog on grass.'

'The letters are pretty.'

'We worked as a team.'

'My friends helped me paint.'

The Children really enjoyed working together as a unit to create this piece of Artwork.

22nd October 2021

Year 4 children shared their science learning about teeth with the Nursery and Reception children, who are beginning to learn about the importance of good oral health. The Year 4 children sat down with a group of Nursery and/or Reception children and shared their Google Slides presentation about teeth with them. Next half term, we hope that Nursery and Reception will share some of their work with Year 4. Well done to all children!

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 Thursday and Friday. 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.

Early Reading And Phonics Workshop - Oct 21
