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.
In case of accidents all children need
ParentZone (I-Connect) is a communication app for Early Years Families, to share targets, progress and achievements in their Learning Journey. Parents can use this to share achievements at home. Families are provided with a unique password which they set up once at https://www.parentzone.me/
Please contact the school office if you need support.
Old Macdonald had a farm, e-i-e-i-o! Do cows drink milk? What are baby pigs called? It’s time to find out more about life on the farm and the animals that live there.
Help your child prepare for their project
Farms are fantastic! Why not explore your kitchen cupboards together and talk about where different foods come from? Do you have any local farm produce? Alternatively, take toy tractors, spades and trowels outside to dig together in the mud. Add water to the soil for extra muddiness – don’t forget your wellies!
This project runs for the first half of the Summer 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 some ideas for your child's project homework. Please let your child choose one to complete.
