Welcome to Early Years!
13. 7. 17
We have had a very busy few weeks at school with art week, assembly prep and sports day! We are so proud of all of the hard work and perseverance displayed by the children in preparation for these events.
During Art Week each Early Years class celebrated a different artist and explored different techniques with their class teacher and during the class swap workshops. It was wonderful for the children to have the opportunity to get stuck into a variety of art projects before displaying their work to parents during our Open Gallery on the 3rd July.
The children discussed and thought carefully about the moral behind the story of The Rainbow Fish and wrote about what makes a good friend. We explored the names and facts of different sea creatures and the children wrote their own What Am I? riddles and used their knowledge of sea creatures to create beautiful fish collages and clay models. Thank you for your support and coming to watch our Rainbow Fish themed class assembly on the 5th July, the children were really proud of themselves.
Thank you for the amazing amount of support during sports day. The children had been busy practising for their individual races and they performed really well on the day.
We would like to thank all of the parents who helped on our trip last week. The children had so much fun meeting the different farm animals and learning interesting facts about them.
Thank you to Miss Aves, Mrs Chander, Mrs Maddula, Mrs Freeme, Mrs Fearon-Murray, Ms Weston, Mrs Haseldon, Miss Sexton, Mrs Girdler and Mr Walter for leading groups on our trip.

TRIP REMINDER- TUESDAY 13th JUNE
Just a quick reminder about our school trip next Tuesday 13th June.
Please ensure the children arrive at school promptly by 8:45 wearing their school uniform. We ask that the children bring in a small rucksack that they are able to carry, with a named sun hat and a water bottle inside. If necessary please apply sun cream in the morning, and send in a small named bottle that the children can apply themselves at lunchtime.
If you have ordered lunch through the school this will be provided on the day. If not, please send in a packed lunch for your child/children.
This week letters went out about our school trip on Tuesday 13th June. Please send back the reply form as soon as possible.
On Friday 26th May the children will be bringing home a planted runner bean in a plastic cup. They will also be taking home a Bean Diary which they can use to record the growth of their bean. Please encourage your child/children to draw pictures and write sentences about how the bean has changed. You can keep the diary at home until completed and then please send it back to school.
As the weather gets hotter please make sure the children bring in a named sunhat and water bottle everyday.
Next week we are learning about Growing. On Monday 22nd May please can the children bring in a baby photo as we will be discussing how they have changed and grown. Please send in the photos in a named envelope or plastic wallet.
After half term we will be holding a Learning Journey drop in session. This will run on Wednesday 7th June from 8:30-9:00. This is a great opportunity for you to come in and share your child/children's learning with them.
We would like to say a big thank you to all of the parents who ran our Outdoor Learning sessions this week!
Thank you to Mrs Farouky, Mrs Kellet, Mrs Maddula, Mrs Martin, Mrs Reeves, Mrs Davis, Mrs Head, Mrs Fearon-Murray, Mrs Finnis, Mrs Hall, Mrs Jarrett, Mrs Freeme, Ms Weston, Mrs Lopez, Mr Tordoff, Mrs Tordoff, Mr Sowerby, Mr Forrest and Mr Blackmore.
