The children have had a good start to the new half term with lots of exciting things to look forward to as we begin to make preparations for christmas in school. There was lots of news to share after the half term holiday which they had enjoyed,what exciting adventures we all had to share.
We have spent the first few weeks settling into our school routine. The children have had opportunities to follow their own interests as well as finding out about favourite stories, Harvest, Autumn and Creation.This half term we will be learning about our Family,Colours and Patterns and Christmas.
The children like to talk through the Daily Calendar and the responsibilty of being the lineleader at the start of the morning ,and they enjoy learning through both the indoor and outdoor environments.
The children are all involved in Read Write Inc sessions Monday to Thursday each week.
PE is on Wednesday morning , so please could the children bring in their kits with names clearly labelled,thankyou.
The Adventure Books are proving to be great fun; the children get very excited to share their adventures with their friends; your child's book will be coming home soon.
During the next few weeks we will be sharing lots of our favourite stories together, so if your child has a favourite story we would be happy for them to bring it into school.
Show and Tell day is each Friday, the idea being that the children can bring something of interest to school to show and talk about it to their friends.
We are happy for you to bring the children into the classroom every morning and help them self register and settle.
We look forward to working closely together with you to ensure that your child feels happy and secure in their learning. If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to let us know.

For current Foundation Stage curriculum, please see 'Curriculum' pages.
In the Foundation Stage, the children learn skills, acquire knowledge and demonstrate their understanding through seven areas of learning: the three Prime areas (personal, social & emotional development / physical development / communication & language) and the four Specific areas (literacy / maths / understanding of the world / expressive arts & design). These areas, and the knowledge and understanding that the staff have about each child, are used to plan the children's learning and activities. We give the children opportunities to play, explore and investigate, and to 'have a go'. We encourage the children to enjoy achieving and to keep on trying if they encounter difficulties. We also give children opportunities to develop their own ideas.
