Welcome to Foundation Stage!

2020-2021

Welcome to our new school term in Foundation Stage.

 

We hope that you all had an enjoyable holiday and are ready to get back into the swing of things? We really enjoyed meeting the children back in July and we have been busy over the past couple of weeks getting the unit ready for them to start full time.

 

As you are aware from reading the news, COVID is still very much present, but please be assured that as a school, we have made every precaution to ensure that your child is safe and will enjoy their time with us each day.

 

From Monday, all FS2 children will be in school from 8:40am-3:05pm. You will need to drop your child off at the coloured picket fence in the morning and they will be collected from there at the end of the day. We appreciate your patience as we get to know your faces and promise we will get quicker over the next couple of weeks. smiley

 

Thank you to those who have already sent in snack money, welly boots and PE kits. If you haven't had opportunity to send them in yet, please do so at your earliest convenience. We will be starting Forest School and PE from next week.

 

We will do our best to send out the reading and communication packs out as soon as we can, however their has been a slight delay with a few of our school orders. Fingers crossed, this will be rectified soon. Until that time please continue to share books together at home and talk about the stories which have been read (characters, setting, order of story etc.)

 

We look forward to getting know you and your family over the next few weeks.

We are usually available each morning from 8:40am-8:50am and after school from 3:05pm-3:20pm. If we cannot help you immediately we will book a telephone appointment for a later date which is convenient for us both or alternatively you can send an email to our class email address and we will get back to you within 48 hours.

REMOTE LEARNING

If your child has to self isolate because they or a family member are showing COVID symptoms, we still want to encourage them to be a 'Busy Bee' if and when they feel well enough.

We have included 2 weeks worth of work for the children to complete, with your support, and would love for them to bring in any finished pieces to show their friends at school.

Please click on the document below to open the 2 week plan.
