In our EYFS class, our Nursery and Reception children work together to learn and develop their skills in a friendly, colourful and creative environment.
The school day will commence at 8:50am where children are to be dropped off at the EYFS playground.
If your child is staying for a school dinner this is from 12 until 12:30pm. Please collect your child at 12 if they are going home for dinners. The end of the school day will be at 3:30pm and we ask you to promptly collect your child at 3:25pm if you have a child in another year group.
PE will take place on a Thursday afternoon (for Nursery and Reception) with a focus on movement this term. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit and pumps/trainers with them in school.
We use class dojo to communicate with both parents and children www.classdojo.com and regularly share things that are going on in the classroom. Please message if you wish to speak to any member of staff.
Ice Lollies and Juice and biscuits
During the hot weather in September we are selling ice lollies for 10p Monday - Thursday and every Friday playtime we offer juice and biscuits to all children in the school for a cost of 50p. Please send your child with their money in a named envelope and hand it to the class teacher.

Baseline Assessment Autumn 2023
We will be using Jolly Phonics to introduce the Nursery children to phonetical sounds but then we will go onto use 'Letters and Sounds' to teach phonics.
Your child will be sent home with a phonics book and a reading book to share. We ask that you practice phonics sounds and reading with your child at least three times per week and sign their reading record.
Please find attached below information about the importance of sharing books with your child and ways to support you to do this.
