Summer 1

Welcome back! We hope you have all enjoyed a lovely break and are looking forward to another fun filled half term! This half term we will be covering some very exciting topics. Through our topic 'Let's Grow!' we will be learning all about growing. We will be planting seeds, growing fruits and vegetables, investigating our outdoor forest area looking for signs of life and finding out what plants, trees and flowers need to help them grow!

Shiver me timbers! We will also be exploring the adventurous world of Pirates, learning about life on the high seas and reading lots of stories. Please see our Summer 1 Curriculum Overview to look more closely at the learning objectives we will be covering this half term. 

Weekly Blog
Keep your eye on the 'EYFS: Blog Items' section below to see what the children have been learning each week. 

Family Fridays
The Foundation Stage staff are pleased to invite all parents and carers to a fun 'stay and play' session held every Friday morning. Family Fridays are a great opportunity to see your child taking ownership of their learning environment and for them to show you around their classroom!  There will also be a short celebration assembly to celebrate the children’s achievements from the week.

Homework
This half term all children in the Foundation Stage will be receiving weekly 'Home Learning Cards'. These will be given out on a Friday and should be returned by Wednesday of the following week. Home Learning tasks should be fun and engaging for your child, if you have any concerns or questions about the weekly tasks please speak to your class teacher who will be happy to help. 

Useful Information

  • Reception Class will now have P.E. every Monday. Please ensure your child brings a labelled kit to leave at school. Nursery Class will continue to have Dance every Tuesday but do NOT require a P.E. Kit. 

  • All Reception Class children will have one to one reading with a member of staff at least once a week. Please ensure their book bag is brought on their reading day.

  • Whilst children continue to adapt to their new school life can we please ask all parents and carers to provide a change of clothes in your child’s school bag. This can be left on your child’s peg until needed.
