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 7th December 2018

This week in Maths, the children have done lots of different work with money.  The main focus was on recognising coins and beginning to understand the tricky concept that 1 individual coin can be worth more than 'one', so we have done a variety of activities to support this and to become more confident with money in general.  Why not support your children at buying something small at the shop using physical money?

We have learned about Advent and the Christmas story in the build up to Christmas.  We also made our Christingle oranges which some children will bring to Holy Trinity Church on the evening of Thursday 6th for our Christingle service at 6pm. 

Also to do with Christmas, we have been rehearsing for next Thursday's Christmas Show!  The children are learning the songs brilliantly, and you may even hear them singing them at home.  Remember to bring in a red or green t-shirt or top next week before Thursday, which your child will change into before the show. 

In the Hall on Thursday 13th for our Christmas Show, we will have a selection of comfortable mats for families to sit on, as we are aware some other children will be there as well and this will be the best way to accomodate everybody and enable everybody to see the performers!  For those who might find sitting on the mats difficult for the show, and to maximise the number of visitors we can support, we will also have a crescent of chairs around the Hall.

Keep up the great work on the Duck and now the Dinosaur! Please support your child's reading on a daily basis! 

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