A caring place to Learn and Grow


Maths in EYFS: Parent Meeting 15th January 2019

Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage!


We hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable Summer break with your families.


The children are settling back into their classes well and we are so pleased to see their smiley faces coming into school every morning. The children continue to make us so proud with their beautiful sitting, and they are remembering all of the previously learnt rules and routines.


We have been amazed at how grown up the children are becoming by walking into the classrooms on their own in the mornings.


This half-term our topics will include Minibeasts, Pirates and Mermaids, Seasides and transition to Year 1. Every week we will upload a Weekly Overview, which will give you an insight into some of the activities we will be doing in school that week.


Homework books will be given out on a Thursday. They will need to be returned by the following Tuesday. Ideas for the homework will be available on the Weekly Overviews. Each week please give feedback on how your child found the activities, by leaving a short comment with their homework.


Each colour team will have a Show and Tell date once, each half term. The show and tell must be inexpensive and we cannot take responsibility for the loss or damage of the item. This should be something of your child’s own choice, and could be a favourite toy/book/model, certificate of achievement, photo, something of interest that they have found. Etc.


The colour group dates are as follows:

Friday 7th June- Ruby group (red)

Friday 14th June- Emerald group (green)

Friday 21st June -Amber group (yellow)

Friday 28th June- Sapphire group (blue)


This half term we will be visiting Forest Schools. Miss Hall's class will be visiting the forest on a Tuesday and Mrs Brooks and Miss Cooks class will be visiting on a Wednesday. On the day of your childs trip, please drop your children off at the normal time. If you wish to discuss any other details of the trip, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.


Keep checking back on this page for more updates and to see some of our brilliant work.


Please note that jewellery is not allowed to be worn in school. This includes hoop earrings, bracelets, anklets and necklaces. Only small studs are allowed, although these have to be removed on PE days.
