Welcome to Early Years
Week 1 – The children have settled really well into their new routines. This week letters will be going home about Forest School which will run every Friday morning and letters about your child’s key person. I have attached a copy of the letters below.
Welcome back everyone. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 5th September. We hope you all had a restful and relaxing holiday. Thank you so much for all your kind words and presents at the end of last term, they were very much appreciated.
Term 1 – All About Me
We begin this term by welcoming Lucy. Lucy will be the full time teacher in EYFS with Ellie working Mondays and Fridays. Michelle, Julia and Sarah will be in bunnies working closely with the younger children helping them to establish routines and to settle.
During the “All About Me” topic children will have lots of opportunities to share interesting facts about themselves and their families and to look at similarities and differences. They will learn lots of important skills such as taking turns and listening to each other. This is a great chance for the children to get to know each other and help settle the new children in.
You will be getting letters home in book bags about learning journeys this week, please look out for these.
We have an open door policy so please do not hesitate to pop in.
Children will need wellies, a coat (when the weather gets chilly) and a water bottle. If your child is in nappies you will need to provide nappies and wipes/nappy bags and a change of clothes.
The EYFS team
Below are the sounds that will be taught throughout the year. Children will learn them in this order. Once they have learnt a sound, they will bring home a card so that they can practise at home:
These are the tricky words we will be teaching the children to read and write throughout the year:
