SPRING TERM

Spring Term 1

Welcome back to the spring term!

Things will look a little different this half term with some of us working in nursery and others working at home.  Staff are working incredibly hard to make sure the virtual learning timetable offers children the same learning experiences as those in the classroom.

FOR THOSE CHILDREN WORKING FROM HOME PLEASE REMEMBER TO ACCESS THE WORK DAILY FROM TAPESTRY OR VIA THE GOOGLEDRIVE LINK AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE.

In Literacy have begun this half term with work based around the story ‘The Little Red Hen’.  Children have enjoyed listening to the story, making story maps, learning songs and creating their own Little Red Hen.

In phonics for phase 1 we are ‘listening to and remembering environmental sounds’ focusing on ‘Farm animals’.  We will have a collection of farm animals and we will describe one of the animals, but not tell the children its name, e.g. ‘This animal has horns, four legs and a tail.’

Can they guess the animal? Can they make a noise the animal might make?

In phonics for phase 2 we will be continuing to learn the set 1 sounds s,a,t,p,I,n

We will be learning the jolly phonics song for each of these sounds and be trying to find things beginning with each of these sounds as well as learning how to form the letter.

In ‘Come and See’ our topics are ‘Celebrations’ and ‘Gathering’

During ‘Celebrations’ children learn about different celebrations and in particular celebrations that take place in church.

During ‘Gathering’ children learn that people gather in Church to listen to God’s word and that children gathered around Jesus and he welcomed them.  

In Maths children will be focusing on a number each week starting with the numbers 1 to 5.

We will be learning the rhymes ‘two little dickie birds’, ‘the animals went in two by two’

We will be reading ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and learning the rhyme ‘three blind mice’

We will be learning the counting rhyme ‘5 little ducks’ and ‘Five Little Speckled Frogs’

Our continuous provision supports us in developing all our skills, as weekly enhancements are changed to match the topic and ultimately to accommodate the interests and needs of our learners

Uniform

We wear a purple school jogging suit, with a yellow polo shirt and velcro shoes/trainers .

This uniform is designed to encourage the children to dress themselves independently. It is also specifically designed as we play in the outdoor classroom each day. Your child will need a waterproof coat with a hood.

Please ensure that all of your child’s items of clothing are marked clearly with their name, but we do not advise parents to get full names printed on the back of sweatshirts.

Children can wear more formalised uniform of school slip and polo shirt or school shorts and polo shirt but we ask that children have sensible school shoes (not sandals or trainers).

PE

PE day is FRIDAY children will need suitable footwear and clothing to be able to move about freely and safely 

Online Learning Journal

We use Tapestry, a secure online learning journal to record your child’s progress and learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage. When your child starts school we will send you log in details and you can change your password.

We also encourage parents to share their home learning stories using tapestry. You can upload photographs and videos of exciting learning experiences and we will share them in class on our interactive whiteboard.

If you need any support please contact a member of the EYFS team.

Home Reading Books

Unfortunately we are not currently able to send home a reading book.  If it becomes possible we will send book home on a FRIDAY to be returned on a WEDNESDAY.  Please make a comment and encourage your child to draw a picture to be shared.

Snack

Costs £1 per week – please send this to school each Monday. At the beginning of each term (three times a year) we ask for an extra 50p as a contribution to pay for your child’s milk.

Star of the day

Every day we choose a star of the day.  This is a child who has followed our rules, shared with their friends or listened to adults.  Most of all it is a child who has tried their best!!!!!
