Our over-arching statement for the Summer term will be

Roots, Shoots and Muddy Boots?

Over the term, we aim to explore the question…

Bees sting so why do we need them?


Using some carefully selected well-known stories, the children will explore the world around them. 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.

Summer Term One

Key Information

PE takes place on a Friday. If your child has their ears pierced please ensure earrings are removed in the morning before school.




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.


We will continue to observe children on a weekly basis as we have done previously. The dates for each group are below. Please note the date for their ‘Show and Tell’.

Strawberry group - week commencing 15/04/24 (Show and Tell, Friday 19th April)
Orange group - week commencing 22/04/24 (Show and Tell, Friday 26th April)
Pineapple group - week commencing 29/04/24 (Show and Tell, Friday 3rd May)
Kiwi group - week commencing 06/05/24 (Show and Tell, Friday 10th May)
Blueberry group - week commencing 13/05/24 (Show and Tell, Friday 17th May)
Grape group - week commencing 20/05/24 (Show and Tell, Friday 24th May)

As always if you have any questions or require any support please do not hesitate to get in contact.


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! Each term we will provide a selection of optional home learning activities you could complete with your child. These will be put on Tapestry and can also be found in the homework link below.
