Welcome to the start of an exciting
We are very much looking forward to meeting all of the children as they embark on their own Learning Journey! This will be an exciting and challenging term for the children as they begin to form friendships, settle into new routines and access plenty of practical, fun and memorable learning experiences both indoors and out.
When we come to visit your home, we will have the chance to talk about your child and answer any questions you may have. It will provide us with an opportunity to chat to your child and for us to get to know them better, finding out about all of the things that they love! We can then create stimulating and engaging activities throughout our year in Foundation Stage Two.
Using some carefully selected well-known stories, the children will explore their ‘uniqueness’ while developing an appreciation for other people. We know that children are more likely to engage with their learning if presented with meaningful contexts and a keen interest in the subject matter. Therefore, staff remain open on the path we take to explore new concepts and skills.
PE takes place on a Friday. If your child has their ears pierced please ensure earrings are removed in the morning before school.
PLEASE ENSURE YOUR CHILD'S NAME IS IN ALL OF THEIR CLOTHES AND BELONGINGS.
Don't forget book bags are needed EVERY DAY.
If your child wants the opportunity to become the 'Reading Champion', please record any books you look at together in their yellow reading record.
People continue to use Tapestry as it is an excellent platform for sharing learning from home and in Foundation.
On home visit we left you a piece of paper saying which fruit group your child is in for our observation cycle. The dates for their focus week and show and tell dates can be found below.
Observation weeks and 'Show and Tell' dates. Please add these dates to your calendar.

Reminder that your child can bring in something small to share for show and tell when it is their Friday. Show and tell is VERY important to the children so please do pop their date in your phone calendar.
Staff are always willing to discuss ways in which you can help your child at home. Feel free to ask if you are in need of some inspiration or ideas about a certain area of learning!
