A Message From The EYFS Team - 14th April 2020

Hello to all the children in our EYFS classes! All the adults in school are missing you but we know that it is important to stay at home to be safe from the Coronavirus.

Keep washing your hands! Keep smiling! Keep learning! Keep playing!

 

With love from the EYFS team xxx

 

Class 1

I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying your time with your families. I can’t wait to hear all about what you have been doing and have loved seeing some of it already.

I know that you are being amazing at home and are all really helping your grown-ups who may have their own learning to do. Make sure they are behaving too!

Remember to have kind hands, kind feet and kind words. I miss you all and can’t wait to see you soon!

 

Love,

Mrs Crawley

 

Class 2

Hello Superstars!

I have loved seeing the rainbows, drawings and pictures that you have created. I hope you are watching the bedtime stories that the adults have been recording for you. I wonder which one is your favourite.

I have enjoyed joining in with Joe Wicks during his daily workout. I am also very busy in my garden. I hope that you are enjoying lots of playtime and fun activities. Don’t forget to look on the school website for lots more activities that I know you will enjoy!

I’m thinking of you all and I believe you all deserve a ‘Supersonic smile’ from me!

 

Lots of love,

Mrs Hodgson xxx

 

Class 3

Hello Class 3. I'm missing you all so much and I hope you're all having lots of fun at home. I'm sure you're helping your families and you're being kind, like I know you all are. "In a world where you can be anything, be kind."

I love seeing what you're doing with your families. I can't wait to hear about all of your adventures at home and I'm looking forward to seeing your smiley faces again.

Stay safe and keep smiling,

 

Miss Cox 🙂

Term 4 - 27th February 2020

We have been dodging the showers and the wind this week but have still been enjoying the challenges in our outside provision. Our maths focus has been linked with time and the children have enjoyed using stopwatches to time themselves completing an obstacle course! Please can I ask that children do not play on the equipment in the outside area before school as it is often set up ready for focused learning activities. Children are also not allowed in the sheds or container.

Our theme this term continues to focus on’ Our Environment’. We are being led by the children's interests and curiosities. We have been using a wide variety of art and media resources to undertake observational drawings of flowers and plants. 

On Tuesday the children enjoyed learning about Shrove Tuesday and we talked about how it linked to Lent and Easter. When we tasted the pancakes the favourite topping was certainly lemon and sugar!

STARS OF THE WEEK: Sonny, Nina, Max T, Louisa, Samuel, Kizzy, Cooper, Max R, Jacob, Lily, Brysen, Kainan, Arthur, Dominic

ROLE MODELS: Connah, Daisy, Frankey, Otis, Theo, Jorja, Kieran, Olivia, Elira, Tommy, Immy, Harriet, Lily, Logan

Term 3 - 16th January 2020

In the EYFS classes, we have been learning the story ‘The Little Red Hen’. Children have learnt to tell the story with actions. Ask them to show you and maybe you could join in too! As part of the story, we made bread rolls and I hope you enjoyed a nibble when they got sent home. Now we have taught all of Step 2 graphemes for our phonics, we are focusing on handwriting and correct letter formation. The children have enjoyed practising the letters and are using pencils and other tools with control. Pleased continue to read frequently with your child and also recap the sight words. The updated school website has an area for phonics so take a look if you need further information.

Term 2 - 28th November 2019

In EYFS, our preparations for Christmas are already underway with many attempts at making salt dough tree decorations.  We have been making Numicon cities and freeing trapped animals using our fine motor skills.  Our Christmas performance rehearsals are going very well and the children are being super stars with their singing and listening.  Please make sure you sign up on the lists outside the EYFS classrooms to attend the production.

Term 2 - 14th November 2019

In EYFS, we celebrated Diwali by creating Mhendi hands and Rangoli patterns using natural materials. Each class joined in with Remembrance Day by having a two minute silence and learning about why we wear poppies. Some of us chose to draw poppies. Last week, we started to learn about money and we had to ‘buy’ our snack. Each class created lots of spider web pictures using colourful pastels and crayons. In phonics this week, we have started to learn our sight words. Please remember to bring coats, hats and gloves for the cold weather.

ROLE MODELS: Kieran, Poppy, Ivy 

Term 1 - 22nd October 2019

We had a wonderful Harvest service this morning.  The children sang beautifully and we are so proud of them! Thank you to all those parents who attended the phonics session.  If you need any further information, please pop in and see Mrs Hodgson in Class 2.   
 

Term 1 - 10th October 2019

In EYFS, we have been enjoying watching the leaves on the trees start to change colour and have explored printing as a way to recreate what we have seen. All three classes have enjoyed visiting our school library. We have started to learn our phonics and the children have been excited to spot the letters in our school environment. Please remember to bring a coat to school with your child’s name in as the weather is very unreliable. There will be two Christmas performances for EYFS which will be Thursday 5th December and Friday 6th December

Term 1 - 26th September 2019

Phonics teaching starts next week so please send your child to school with their book bag every day. Look out for a reading record and the sound (phoneme) sheets that will be going home in your child’s book bag. Encourage your child to tell you about the phonemes that we have learnt in school. You can also play games to help your child hear these sounds in words and develop recognition of the letter shape (grapheme). We are holding a phonics information session for parents in October so please join us for further information about the teaching of phonics and learning to read. 
 

Term 1 - 12th September 2019

Following very successful home visits last week, we welcomed the new Reception children into our EYFS classes on Monday. The children have settled incredibly well and have been exploring the wonderfully inviting resources and new learning environments. The outside ‘Water Wall’ has proved very popular and we are very grateful for the talents of Mr Redding, who kindly made and donated the wooden equipment to the school. We look forward to the children attending school for full days next week and continuing their learning journey. As always, if parents have any questions please come along and see us.
