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 which remain at school
  • Wellies
  • No laces on shoes, velcro fastenings are ideal for this age.

Tapestry 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 login. 

Please contact the school office if you need support.

As you are aware from receiving details of how to log on to Little Wandle, we have selected this as our new phonics scheme.  Here is the link to explore more of what this looks like for your child.   www.littlewandlelettersandsounds.org.uk/resources/for-parents/

Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas - Do cows drink milk?

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.

 

This half term we’ll monitor beans as they grow, noting how they change. In our literacy lessons, we’ll make predictions about stories and try out some farmyard rhymes. We’ll create songs about the farm to sing as we shake our homemade seed shakers in time. In our mathematics lessons, we’ll use an animal ‘baa chart’ to estimate the number of popular farmyard animals, and we’ll use addition and subtraction to help Little Bo Beep count her sheep. Outside once more, we’ll take it in turns to be sheepdogs, sheep and farmers. Can we herd all of our sheep into the pen? Getting creative, we’ll use coloured play dough and clay to create farmyard scenarios.

 

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? You could also visit a local farm or petting zoo and take pictures of each animal to share with the class. 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!

 

The new projects run 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.
