Autumn Newsletter

Autumn 1

This half term we are learning about ourselves. Children will be making portraits of themselves and settling into their new classes. Upper foundation stage children will have PE on a Tuesday and Friday morning- please make sure PE kits are sent to school with your child.

 

We are currently building a mud kitchen and are hunting for spare pallets and old scaffolding planks. If you have either of these that you would like to donate to school please get in touch.

 

Autumn 2

We are learning all about dinosaurs. Here is some of the work we have produced and some of the areas we can learn all about dinosaurs and their habitat.

Spring Newsletter

Spring 1

This half term we are learning all about toys. Children will be sharing their favourite toys through this half term. If you have any toys from when you were young that you are happy for us to show the children please bring them in and pass them onto a member of Foundation stage staff.

We read Kippers Toybox-children painted characters from the story and drew and wrote about their favourite toys.

We also read Harry and the Robots. Children learnt about how robots help in lots of different ways and made their own box craft robots. They also made robots using different shapes and wrote about the story. Here is some of the work produced.   

 

We also have new starters in Lower foundation stage and want to wish them a warm welcome.

 

Spring 2

This half term our topic is MAGIC! We are starting by reading the story 'The magic porridge pot'. 

We really enjoyed French day when our families came into school to see some of the work we do.

We also enjoyed science day where we made paper aeroplanes and catapults when learning about different forces.
