Welcome to the Summer Term! This term, our topic is 'Marvellous Magic'. We will be using the story of Mavis the Magical Cat as a basis for all our work.
If your child is required to isolate, we have provided home learning for you to complete with your child. Please access the Home Learning - Term 5 page which can be found above. This will run parallel to the lessons being taught in school. When you click the Home Learning - Term 5 section (above), it will take you to the resources and information for the week.
The home learning timetable is a suggested timetable for the day and week. We suggest you follow it as best you can. However, remember you can only do your best and we know home schooling is difficult. We have tried to make the activities a mixture of tasks to do together with your child and things they can have a go at on their own.
As always if you have any questions about your child's learning please email the class teacher using the class email address in the contact us section or at the bottom of the page. We will also be aiming to contact you via telephone each week to talk about your child's progress and engagement with the home learning. Also, we are in school teaching so we will answer emails and contact you around day to to day teaching.
We hope you are staying safe and well in these uncertain times.
The EYFS Team
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), covers the first years of your child's development, from birth to the end of their first year in school. The emphasis is on learning through play, in a safe and secure environment.
We have four classes in Reception: Ladybirds, Dragonflies, Bumblebees and Butterflies. The teachers work together to plan and offer interesting and fun activities for the children, following the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the 'Development Matters' document. Every child is given the support and opportunity to learn and develop at their own pace.
Reception children are very much a part of our school community. They take part in school assemblies, concerts and fun days. Through the curriculum they learn to work together, share ideas, equipment and to build good relationships with other children and adults.
