This year we will be operating on a Week A, Week B timetable on a Wednesday

(this is because Forest Classroom takes place every other week).

 

Our children's first week back (w/c 06/09/21) is Week A.

 

Children should come into school in their PE kits (weather appropriate clothing) on their designated PE day.

Wellies (named) can be left in school or brought into school in a carrier bag.

 

 

Children will earn a stamp in their reading record books if they read every evening.

When their stamp sheet is completed, children will have a reward.

 

We understand that children attend clubs etc after school or at the weekend. The above timetable is for guidance only. However, research shows that children who have 1:1 time with parents, make more progress.

 

Autumn Term 2021

 

Here are a selection of pictures showing some of the wonderful things we have been doing...

Reception meet their Reading Buddies

We have been busy designing and making Elmer collages for our buddies to show our 'friendship' and how much we value their support with our reading...

Printing and Painting Trees

Forest Classroom Term 1 and 2

During our Forest Classroom sessions, we have been learning about 'Autumn' and what this looks like in the forest.  We linked the EYFS Maths by grouping and sorting different leaves and looking for '3' different types of leaves.  We discovered, by looking at the leaf shapes that we had: Beech trees, Sweet Chestnut trees and Oak trees (as well as some others which we will discover the names of next term). 

 

 

 

Autumnal Maths - EYFS number recognition and counting with leaves

Class 1 preparing for armistice day!

Autumn Term key texts include:

Monty the Manatee: A book which emphasises the importance of kindness and friendship. 

 

Elmer: Explores themes of identity, diversity and tolerance. This teaches pupils to be happy with who they are

and accept others and embrace differences. This lays a firm foundation for pupils to be friends with a variety of people

and helps to prevent bullying behaviour.

 

Florence Nightingale (e-book): Introduces conflict through war and history and how individuals can make a difference.

 

Guy Fawkes for Kids: This book links with the time of year and teaches our children about British history and tradition.

Centred around conflict, this allows for discussion about peace.

 

Kindness Makes Me Stronger:  This book clearly show our children how easy and joyful it is to be kind.

 

Malala's Magic Pencil:  This book shows that small actions can make a big difference.

 

In addition, we will share a range of Bible stories.
