Welcome to Foundation Stage!

2021-2022

Remote Learning Day - Monday 6th December

Please find below the learning activities for the children in Class 1 and Class 2 to complete on Monday 6th December. We've tried to keep the activities as stress free as possible, whilst consolidating what we have been learning in class. Try to complete at least 1 activity from each area of learning, giving as much encouragement and praise as necessary. 

To celebrate the work which they have completed during the day, we invite the children to bring in anything which they have completed so they can share it with their friends once we return to school.

Take care everyone.

Remote learning - Busy Bee Jobs for Monday 6th December

Welcome to our new school term in Foundation Stage 2!

 

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.

 

To help settle the children into their new surroundings they will only be in school for half sessions for the first week. The office staff will have emailed you to let you know whether your child will attend the morning or afternoon session.

AM session: 8:30am-11:30am

PM session: 12:30pm-3:05pm

 

From Monday 13th September, all FS2 children will be in school from 8:30am-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 during collection times, as we get to know your faces, and promise we will get quicker over the next couple of weeks. smiley

 

A few important notices:

* Please send in your child's PE kits and wellies at your earliest convenience. We will be starting Forest School and PE from week 2. All items need to be clearly labelled and stay in school for the whole half term. We will send them home to be washed at the October half term holiday.

                         

 

* As part of our morning routine we have a rolling snack provided for the children to independently access. We ask for you to make a small contribution of £20 to cover the cost of this for the year. This money also allows us to take part in various food tasting and cooking sessions throughout the year. Can you please send any monetary contributions in a labelled envelope by the end of the first week. Thank you.

                                                

 

* We will send out the reading books, diaries and communication packs by the end of the first week. Please dedicate a small amount of time each day to share the books together and talk about the stories which have been read (characters, setting, order of story etc.) To allow us to keep track of the children's home reading, please sign the children's reading record each time you read with your child and feel free to make a small comment to let us know how they got on. 

                                     

 

* We will be inviting you to a 'virtual Meet and Greet' on Wednesday 22nd September at 6pm. It will be an opportunity for you to ask any questions which may have come to mind after your child's first couple of weeks in school. Remember... No question is a silly question! wink

                                          

 

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

Letters and important documents

We have worked hard to create a curriculum that allows the children to learn and explore both indoors and outdoors following the new Early Years Framework. Why not take a look at what your children are going to be learning during the coming few months?

Helpful websites

We live in a digital age and children can gain a lot of knowledge and understanding from good quality educational games and websites.

We have made a list below of a few that we find useful in school, which may aid your child's learning at home. Please let us know if you have any further suggestions and we will add them to the list.

​​​​​​Information regarding COVID-19

INDIVIDUAL ISOLATION

 

If this happens we will email you a letter containing information about what to do whilst at home.

There will be a range of practical activities for your child to complete during their isolation, if they are well enough. The work can be accessed via the files section on MS Teams. Completed work can be photographed and emailed or bought into school on your child's return. (There will only be planned activities available. No live lessons will take place at this time.)

Talk for Writing

The children have been looking at a variety of story maps over the past few weeks some of which are nursery rhymes and some that are traditional tales. We thought it would be great to put the story maps on here so the children could share these with you at home, and show you how good they are at remembering the story/nursery rhyme using the map and actions!!
