Welcome to Reception
Mrs Newman and Mrs Deeley and Mrs Dinnis and Miss Jones
This half term we will be learning in all seven areas of the curriculum through our topic 'The Farm'.
We will be role playing a working farm and a farm shop, learning all about farm animals and reading the Usbourne farmyard tales books, to name a few things. Please see the curriculum newsletter for full details of all the exciting things we will be doing.
You will receive your child’s targets in a red zip folder. Please practice these with your child. They will be reviewed at the end of the term.
Jigsaw Jenie will still be helping us this term. She will be helping us think about our dreams and goals. Your child will choose their own goal they would like to achieve and we will notify you about their choice.
Please continue to send me emails, to let the team know what you have been learning at home and all the exciting things you have been doing.
Make sure you look at the photographs and links to work below.
Early Adopter School
We have started this school year with an exciting change for our 'Early Years Foundation Stage'. The government released two new documents of 'Curriculum Guidance' for the 'Early Years Foundation Stage' and 'Development matters' in September 2021.
Our school has opted in to be an ‘Early adopter’ of this new guidance and will be piloting the 'New Early Learning Goals'. Those schools who are not early adopters will follow this guidance from September 2021.
