In our FSU class, our Nursery and Reception children work together to learn and develop their skills in a friendly and colourful, creative environment.
The school day will commence at 8:50am where children are to be dropped off at the Foundation playground. We ask that you follow the marked one way system when leaving the grounds.
If your child is staying for a school dinner this is from 11:50am until 12:30pm. Please collect your child at 11:50am 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 Wednesday and Thursday afternoon with a focus on movement and ball skills for this term. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit and pumps/trainers with them on these days.
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.
Spring Term 2022
This term our topic will be 'A Musical Winters Tale '. For the Winter element of our topic we will be learning what life is like in Winter and how animals adapt to winter conditions. For the musical aspect of our curriculum we will be looking at a range of instruments, how they are played and the sounds that they make.
We will then go onto make out own instruments.
Baseline Assessment 2021
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.
