Reading at home

We send home books for reading every Tuesday.  We encourage you to share time with a book everyday.  Think about how we hold them, talk about the pictures.


Send them back every Monday and we will change them

There is no need for them to come to school everyday!


Reading and stories in school


We are focusing on lots of stories this half term. Particularly ones where we can talk about how things grow.  We will be planting seeds and watching what happen and have some caterpillars that we will watch grow and change.


At home you could help by looking at photographs of your family when they were babies or children.


We are starting to think about letter sounds and if we think they are ready we we will be focusing on the Phase 2 sounds which  are; s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, ff, l, ll and ss.


Number work

We will be focusing on counting, understanding one more and one less and recognising numerals.  You can help by going on a number walk.  Where can you find numbers? and which numbers can you find?


We will put a sheet in your book bag to help you.

 Forest School


Mr Mitchell is qualified Forest School Practitioner.   We share special times around our campfire where we have stories, bake food, make forest art and use tools to make things.  We really need our wellies in school.  We try and go out whatever the weather.





Outdoor Learning

We will be spending lots of time outside. Please bring appropriate clothing. Bring a change of clothes in case your child gets mucky. 



We have a healthy eating policy in EYFS providing fruit and milk to the children every day. Encourage your child to drink water - it's good for you.  

Please ensure that packed lunches are healthy and nutritious. We have children with nut allergies, so avoid these in packed lunches


Birthdays and staying healthy


As a ‘Healthy School' and being aware of allergies , we do not celebrate children’s birthdays with sweets or cakes. Instead we ask parents to bring in a healthy snack such as cheese, crackers, fruit, bread sticks.  If you have any doubts, speak to a member of nursery staff.
