We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which uses continuous play and exploration to learn. Adults plan both adult led and child initiated activities that enable the children to develop social skills, self confidence and independence in a range of contexts.   

Please remember to bring:

In case of accidents all children need;

  • A spare set of pants, a top and bottoms, which remain at school in their locker. 

They also need;

  • their book bag and water bottle everyday.
  • no laces on school or PE shoes, velcro fastenings are ideal for this age.

Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas - Do you want to be friends? 


Friends are the family you choose! Do you want to be friends? Would you like to play with me? It’s time to find out more about friendship, being kind and working together.


This half term, we’ll take a walk around our school to find out about the adults who work there and their workspaces, taking photos as we go. Back in the classroom, we’ll upload and print our photos to compile a ‘Who’s who?’ display of school staff.  We’ll talk about friendship, being kind and helpful, loneliness, enemies, and the things we like. What is our most cherished possession? In our literacy lessons we’ll discover new words to describe ourselves, and write sentences to compare and contrast each other. In our mathematics lessons, we’ll share objects out fairly, and compare hand and foot sizes with our friends.


Help your child prepare for their project
Friends are fabulous! Why not create a ‘friends and family tree’ together out of photos? Use different coloured lines to draw links that represent family, friends or acquaintances. You could also create a ‘treasure chest’ out of the things that make you ‘you’. Which possessions couldn’t you cope without? Alternatively, invite friends round for a get-together and discuss memories of happy experiences you have shared.


The new projects run for the first half of the Autumn term. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home. 


Below are a list of ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related. 


For this half term our project is Do you want to be friends? 

In this project we are looking at: 


  • Making Friends 

  • Being Kind 

  • Being Helpful 


Could you ask your child to draw a picture relating to any of the above areas. This could be friends they have made and how they have been kind or helpful at home or at school. 


We will be displaying all of the children's work. We look forward to seeing your creations. 

At the end of the project homework period your child will receive either a bronze, silver or gold project homework badge.

Bronze = a basic piece of project homework was completed

Silver = a good piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of time to complete

Gold = an excellent piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of thought, time and effort to complete

Little Wandle is our phonics scheme.  Here is the link to explore more of what this looks like for your child.
