Art Week

EYFS (Nursery) have been looking at Jackson Pollock. They used blue, yellow and

red paint to splatter, they all had lots of fun! 

 

Useful Information

Nursery:

The children start school at 8.40, coming in to provision and then eventually name writing. Miss Caygill and Mrs Chadwick are available to answer any questions and deal with any concerns as well as hear your exciting news! We get the children ready to leave for 3.05pm to allow parents with older children to have time to collect them from the other doors after collecting Nursery children.

For children staying for dinners in Nursery, they are asked to bring a packed lunch. They will go for lunch with a midday supervisor at 11:40 and return for the afternoon session at 12:10.

We are hoping to run Family Learning sessions, which are great fun for both children and parents. There are usually two groups of sessions: ‘Play and Language’ where we focus on communication, language and Literacy based activities, ‘Play, and Number’ where we focus on number songs, number and shape based activities.

We also love singing and are aiming to hold sessions on a Friday in both the morning and the afternoon at the end of each session. The more the merrier! We welcome families to join in the fun, and find that it is well loved by brothers, sisters, cousins and friends who haven’t started at Nursery yet!

Nursery children have a home-school library system, where they are able to choose a book to be shared at home. These books will be changed once a week on a Wednesday.

We always try to use the children’s interests, so although we have our plan ready for the term, it can change as the children develop. All of the topics are planned through the careful progression of the EYFS.

For any other information on our practice and policies, just ask or arrange a time to come and see us. We welcome your involvement, and appreciate any support with reading, craft, cooking and baking, walks, visitors – anything!

Reception:

The children start school at 8.40, coming in to different activities such as name writing and dough disco on the carpet with Mrs Chadwick. Miss Caygill and Mrs Chadwick are available to answer any questions and deal with any concerns as well as hear your exciting news! We get the children ready to leave for 3.05pm to allow parents with older children to have time to collect them from the other doors after collecting Nursery or Reception children.

For children on school dinners in Reception, the menu is in the Reception entrance to help your child to choose what they would like. We also try to send home menus regularly and they are on the school dinners website.

We are hoping to run Family Learning sessions, which are great fun for both children and parent.  There are usually two groups of sessions: ‘Play and Language’ where we focus on communication, language and Literacy based activities, ‘Play, and Number’ where we focus on number songs, number and shape based activities. We will keep you posted on when the next term sessions are starting.

Reception children have their books changed three times a week, more if possible. Reception also have homework weekly, with practical activities to do together to keep everyone involved in what is happening at school and at home.

We always try to use the children’s interests, so although we have our plan ready for the term, it can change dramatically as the children develop, but all of the topics are planned through the careful progression of the EYFS.
