This blog is a great way of keeping up to date with the work of the Foundation Stage each week. You will find here information about events coming up and what the children are/have been doing in class. Hopefully with the nightly twitter updates, the blog each week and the daily drop offs, you will feel that you know what your child has been up to at School.

 W/E 15th February 2019

What an exciting end to Term 3!  The children sung brilliantly for our Stay and Play on Thursday (the adults in the audience did a great job too - thanks!).  Well done to all of the children.  We also had an amazing Space Dome visit Friday morning.  The children were in awe, and learned a lot of new facts.

Next term we begin our topic of growing.  This will cover not only growth in plants, but also animals and people, as well as exploring the concept of decay.

In Phonics we have continue introducing the rest of the Phase 3 digraphs ('ow', 'oi', etc.) and trigraphs ('ear', 'air', 'ure'), as well as recapping on those Phase 2 and 3 sounds already taught. 

Do check the noticeboard in the corridor between the two classes for Term 4's '5 Steps to Success'.  Supporting your child with these changing targets is one way to help your child's learning! 

Many parents will meet their child's teacher the first week back in the afternoons.  This will be an opportunity to meet to discuss progress and next steps, and bring any questions you may have.

Keep up the great work on the Duck, Dinosaur and now the Rocket! Please support your child's reading on a daily basis.  Remember, try to save time to read stories to your children, as well.

As always, please do not hesitate to bring any questions or concerns our way.
