Stickman 

Stickman visited EYFS and left us daily gifts. We wrote to him to ask him questions about the things he left. We have learnt parts of the story,  drawn story maps as prompts for retelling. and have thought about different endings. 

 

 

Bedtime stories 

The EYFS team had a lovely evening reading stories to our EYFS children whilst they enjoyed hot chocolate and biscuits. Many thanks to all who came and helped to make this a special evening.

Supporting learning at home 

October 2018

Start of the Autumn Term 2018

We have enjoyed getting to know the children and finding out what they already know. This has allowed us to plan play opportunities which will match the interests and needs of the unit. We have introduced routines and structures of the day including; break times, lunch in the hall, rewards and behaviour management and some assemblies. We are looking forward to learning more about the children and the year ahead.

Head Lice - 23 May

A case of head lice has been reported, please check and treat your child's hair as necessary.

EYFS News 18 May

Reception have had nine very fluffy visitors for the last 2 weeks! They have been observing the chicks hatch and grow and have thought very carefully about how to look after the chicks. They have helped to feed, water and clean the chicks out daily- they grew very quickly! Reception were very lucky to be able to use their PTA trip money to pay for the chicks, they have taught the boys and girls a lot about growth, change and caring for living things. The children (and grown-ups) are very sad to say bye to the chicks as they return to Farmer Brown to become free range Hens and Cockerels.
