Please contact the office for all queries and continue to send in photos of home learning.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend everyone!

Home learning the week beginning 6th July

This week's poem from the Poetry Basket is called 'Under a Stone".

Under a Stone

 

Under a stone where the earth was firm,

 

I found a wiggly, wriggly worm.

 

“Good morning,” I said.

 

“How are you today?”

 

But the wiggly worm just wriggled away.

For long term learning objectives please click on the links below:

Year R Learning Objectives (2019 - 2020)

These are the Early Learning Goals that we will be working towards throughout the year - they will show you the Expected Level of Attainment (ELA) at the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage (Reception). If children are not working at this level they will either be Emerging ( below the ELA) or Exceeding (above the ELA).

     

    Value of the Month

    We have 4 core values which we will revisit every term. 

    Please take time to talk about these values at home, with your child:

    •  Respect
    •  Resilience
    •  Empathy
    •  Reflection

       

    Achievements at Home

     We would love to know about your child's achievements and learning at home. You can use the below "Wow" sheets, or just send an email or a photo to me via the office. 

    Thank you.
