On Wednesday mornings we have PE and forest school. The children can come to school in their PE kits, remember to bring their warm coats and wellies!





Please share a book with your child every night. As they begin to read

words and sentences themselves, they will bring reading books home to

read to you.

We will also send phonics games home for you to play together.


On Wednesday's the children will bring their handwriting books  home - it's important that you sit with your child and help them to practise the letter or patterns that the class teacher has indicated.


We have also asked the children to start their 'Box about me' project  - remember to email us pictures to show how you're getting on  


Week 1. 

Find a shoe box or small box at home and decorate it whichever way you like using different materials, crafts and colours.

 Week 2. Wednesday 30th September:

Get a family photograph and put it inside your box, you can also stick it in. Draw all your family members and label who is who.

Week 3. Wednesday 7th October:

Think about what some of your favourite things are. Find a picture on the internet, take a photo or look in magazines and newspapers and cut out the things that you like. Perhaps your favourite food, colour, toy. Create a collage and put it in your box.

   Week 4. Wednesday 14th October:

Put something special in your box that you can talk about with your class. (Please don’t put anything valuable inside)

  Week 5. Thursday 22nd October:

Bring in your completed box about me and be ready to talk about what is inside. Think about what makes you special? I am special because…












Fantastic Homework

We have been busy working hard at home and have made some super boxes. 

We have been developing our speaking and listening skills by talking to the whole class about what is inside our box. We are able to talk all about ourselves and answered questions about our special boxes.

Our Classrooms

We hope to offer the children an exciting and interesting environment to explore freely. We provide lots of collections of resources in baskets for the children to independently access. We aim to provide opportunities for children to explore their own ideas and learn through play with them being independent in their choices allowing child led inquiry to take place.

Outdoor Learning

We believe experiences outdoors are important for children's development and learning.

We provide the opportunity for children to explore through play in the outdoor environment which uses the space and nature that we have. We provide opportunities for developing skills in communication, reading, writing, maths and problem solving through outdoor learning.

There are a variety of resources available to the children which encourage risk taking and help support physical development such as large construction blocks, wooden planks and crates.




Don’t forget to complete some activities on the EYFS Autumn/Winter bucket list!

Email some photos in to show your child’s class teacher!
