Welcome to Year R
Meet The Early Years Team

The new RE topic is all about stories Jesus heard when he was little. As part of this topic I would like the children to bring in their favourite story so they can share this with their friends. They can then design their own front cover and some children may even be able to write a simple book review.
The children have been looking at and comparing the weather in different environments. They have looked at the weather in Iceland , Congo rainforest and next week we will be looking at the desert in Egypt. To help the children understand they have made a small world to represent the different environments.
Happy new year and welcome to a new term. This term we will be focusing on handwriting so I will be sending home a handwriting book so that you can help your child at home. This half term our topic is all about the weather. A curriculum map can be found below.
The children performed brilliantly last night and also on Tuesday afternoon. A big thank you to all the parents who supplied the costumes and also who came to help get the children changed. The foundation stage team wish all our wonderful children and their parents a peaceful[not sure how that is going to happen] and happy Christmas.
We have been investigating the changes of different materials. We have been looking at the changes of chocolate when we put it in the microwave. We then left the chocolate for a while and looked at the change. We learnt that this is a reversible change.
We have had a lovely day today. The children looked wonderful and a big thank you to you for their costumes and the children in need donation.
Please see below the latest curriculum map which this half term is all about materials. Today your child should have brought a letter home informing you of the part they will play in our Christmas production.
We have been learning about the 5 senses. Today we have been tasting different food and had to decide if it was sweet, salty, bitter and sour.
We have taken lots of photos of the children in the different learning areas. I hope you enjoy looking at them.
We would like to welcome our new reception children and parents to a new academic year. It is a very exciting time for all the children but it can also be a daunting time for some. The children will soon settle and begin to make new friends and they will begin to learn the classroom and school routines. For the first few weeks of starting school we will be carrying out observations and getting to know your child so we have a starting point from which to start their learning. It also gives your child a chance to explore their classroom and all the different learning areas which aid learning. The different learning areas can be found below and during the settling in period we will take photos of your child in the different learning areas for you to see.
If you have any questions or you are concerned about something please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the early years team. We look forward to working with your child and helping him or her to flourish and enjoy school life.
In the early years, our areas are always available for children to access independently to challenge and support their learning in a meaningful way. Activities are planned to suit the needs of all children and a variety of resources are always available to ensure your child is able to practise the skills and tasks which interest them.
Take a look below at some of the learning areas which are available to your child.
