Over the terms, we aim to explore two main questions…

Bees sting, so why do we need them?

I wonder where you’re from

 

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.

Please continue to use Tapestry as it is an excellent platform for sharing learning from home and in Foundation.

 

 

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!

 

 

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 red reading record. For each read that is recorded during the week your child will receive a raffle ticket. These then get placed into a pot and a ticket picked out at random to be the 'Reading Champion'. Therefore the more reads recorded the more chances your child has to win.
