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.
Look at what has appeared in both classrooms! I wonder what could be inside? Who are Jingle and Elfie? We can not wait to find out what the special surprise is on Monday!

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
Calling all Foundation Stage parents. Next Wednesday (20th September 2017) we will be holding a phonics workshop starting at 5.15pm.This workshop will be a brilliant opportunity for you to find out about how we will be teaching your child to read and write during their first year at school. You will find out about the phonics language that we use with your children and gain some ideas for how to support your child at home. You will also find out about when and how your child will receive their reading books. Unfortunately the workshop is not suitable for children to attend but we are really excited to see as many of you as possible.

We have had an amazing first day and would like to say a huge thank you to all parents for supporting your children to come in independently.
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.
