Parents as Partners
Week Beginning Monday 25th February 2019
This week has been a busy one! A big thank you to all parents who came with us to Vernon Park. We had a lovely time and the children were thrilled to share ‘story world ‘with you. We hope you also liked their letters they sent you to say thank you for coming. Our next ‘Inspire Event’ will be coming soon J
After the half term holiday we will be:
Understanding of the World – We will be introducing the season of Spring and planting some plants and bulbs to grow within our outside area.
Literacy – We will be introducing our new Narrative Immersion text – ‘What the Ladybird heard’ – We have sent home the ‘TOP SECRET PLANNING’ for you to give us your ideas of the activities that you think your child would like to do in school. Please return as soon as possible.
Letters and Sounds – We will be learning the vowel digraphs ai, ee, igh and oa. We will be using ai, ee, igh and oa in the middle of words (wait, sheep, night and boat). We will be learning to read the Tricky word ‘was’ and will be reading two syllable words (popcorn, cupboard, playground)
Mathematics – We will be writing simple number sentences linked to rhymes and songs.
Parents as Partners
Reading Books – We change books on a Monday – but please remember to bring your child’s Reading pack every day. Please would you try and keep your child’s diary, reading record, library book and reading books in the pack provided. It helps when all the items are together. If books are lost they will need to be replaced so you will have to pay for any lost items.
PE Kits – Please return your child’s PE kit after the holidays. We have PE on Monday so therefore kits need to be returned the first day back.
Dates for your Diary
TLC Bags – You are invited to come into school to be introduced to our TLC initiative which we have put in place for all the children within EYFS. You will also be able to take home your child’s first TLC bagJ
Tuesday 5th March at 2.15pm
