Thank you to those parents who were able to attend the phonics meeting last night. It was a great opportunity to meet you all and for you to see how wonderfully resourced we are to make phonics learning fun.
If you are unable to attend we will be sending home a hand out which explains the terminology we use with the children and offers a few examples of the games and resources used in school.
If you have any further questions, as always, do not hesitate to speak to one of our team.
Can we remind you that Foundation Stage is often abbreviated to FS in communications. There are a number of reasons why we have to do this, one of which is the need to limit the number of characters in such things as text and Twitter.
Today is national teaching assistant day. We are extremely lucky in our school to have the most amazing LSAs.
Foundation Stage celebrated with with a party. Mrs Burgess, Ms Harrison and Mrs Walker were all very surprised and we danced and played party games. We cheered and clapped when they were awarded their crowns and stickers and scrolls. We are very grateful for their knowledge and talent. Continue reading
The children are so delighted to get their first reading books.
They are keen to practise the see, think, wonder with you.
We look forward to reading their ideas in their reading record.
The children have said that they are going to really try and practise at home getting their P.E kits on and off in the right order.
The children follow the pictures on the board board to help us in school. These can help them at home too.
Maybe they can be timed and then each time they practise that have to try and beat their last time.
The challenge is set. Who can do it?
At the beginning of the term we are sharing the book ‘Don’t worry, Spratly’ all about dealing with changes such as starting a new school and it helps them to understand how to be a good friend.
We will also be reading a range of Elmer books all about everyone being unique and everyone being different. We will be asking the children to think about what makes them special. Do they have a favourite hobby or interest? Have they got a super talent such as football or painting?
We love sharing books so if the children have a favourite then they are more than welcome to bring it in to share with the class.
Parents please can you help us to ensure the smooth running of the day by remembering to label everything. As you can imagine there are lots of jumpers, cardigans and shoes that are all the same.
Please remember to send a healthy snack and named water bottle each day. Don’t worry if your child comes home with water in their water bottle because they drink lots throughout the day and we keep refilling them.
Ask the children to tell you about the morning routine and the colour group they are in. That will help them to remember after the weekend ready for Monday.
They have had a busy week for sure but it has been really positive.
Have a great weekend.
You will be getting your password for the online Tapestry profile very soon and we are sure you will enjoy the updates.
The children are having a brilliant week getting used to the routines and expectations in our school.
They have been having lots of fun.
May we take this opportunity to offer you a big warm All Saints welcome to our school. This week we will be supporting the children to learn the routines and expectations within our Foundation Stage. We hope that your children will share with you their experiences and we will keep you up to date on here with information and photographs to celebrate their achievements.
Each morning there will be a member of our Foundation Team on the gate if you wish to pass a message onto the class teacher. The whole team will be on the play ground at the end of the day to see your children safely back to you. Please remember to give us a wave so we can familiarise ourselves with you.
We are very much looking forward to seeing your children again and hearing about what they did over the Summer.
We know this is can be both an exciting and nervous time for the both the children and their family and we want you to be rest assured that they will be happy and safe and have a great time making new friends and learning through play.
Best wishes from the whole of the Foundation Stage team.
